Our Practice is a Training/Teaching Practice. We train registrars who wish to specialise in General Practice. Our registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars attached to our Practice become General Practitioners after completing their training. When booking an appointment you may be asked if you would consult with our registrar.
We are also fortunate to have medical students and doctors from the hospital attached to our Practice for short periods. If you do not wish to have the student or hospital doctor present during your consultation please inform a memeber of the reception staff.
