GP Registrar Training

The practice is accredited as a GP Training Practice. This means the Practice will have attached to it a qualified Doctor training to specialise in General Practice and each doctor will remain with us for a period usually of 18 months. You may therefore be offered an appointment with the GP registrar. By the time you see a GP registrar they will have spent at least 5 years at medical school to qualify as a doctor. Then they will have at least 2 years working in hospital (previously known as “house jobs”), before starting a 3 year speciality training programme to become a fully qualified GP Consultant, during which they will spend 18 months in a training practice. So by the time you see this Doctor they already have several years of experience already.

As part of their training the GP Registrar will need to video record some of their consultations as part of their training and assessment. You may be asked by the receptionists if you would be happy to take part in this if you have an appointment with the GP Registrar.  At any time you are able to say “no” to being videotaped and this will not prejudice the way your consultation is viewed or handled in any way. At the end of your consultation, if you don’t wish the recording to be used, you can state this and it will be erased. Please note that all videos are kept confidential and are destroyed when no longer required.  We are extremely grateful for your time and patience working with the Practice in training the next generation of GPs who will take care of our Community for the years and decades ahead.

At any time if you do not wish to be seen by a GP Registrar at your consultation please feel free to bring this to the attention of the receptionist or GP. At no time will this decision prejudice your care with us.
