Medical education

We are a training/teaching practice and you may be offered an appointment with a GP registrar. Our registrars are fully qualified and have had a great deal of hospital experience.  They are attached to the practice for four to twelve months whilst they complete their specialist training in General Practice and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the health care we provide.

When booking an appointment, you may be asked if you would consult with one of our registrars and we wish to reassure you that they will give our patients modern, effective and caring treatment.

Sometimes you may be asked if your consultation with the registrar may be recorded on videotape.  This is done to further the registrar’s personal training and education.  You will always be asked beforehand and you may feel free to say if you prefer your consultation not to be videoed.  You will be asked to sign a consent form and you are entitled to withdraw your consent after the consultation if you change your mind.

We are a teaching practice for King’s Undergraduate Medical Education in the  Community (KUMEC).   Sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor  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.
