We are a training practice and you may be offered an appointment with a GP Registrar. These doctors are fully qualified will have had experience in several hospital specialties. Some are completing their specialist training as a GP (ST3), others are in their first year of GP specialist training (named ST1) and split their time between general practice and a hospital post.
We also train Foundation Doctors. These hospital based qualified doctors are training to become registered with the GMC (General Medical Council). They are not necessarily training to be GP's and are doing the job as part of the wider experience needed for registration.
We also teach medical students and sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse with a student present. You will always be asked beforehand if this is acceptable and you may ask for the student to withdraw if you prefer to have your consultation in private.
