Our practice is a training and teaching practice. Our registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. They are attached to our practice for 4 to 12 months and they are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice partners.
We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. If you do not wish to have the student present during your consultation please inform the reception staff prior to seeing the doctor.
