The Practice is proud to participate from time to time in the training of medical students - the doctors of tomorrow. The Trainers at our practice are Dr H R Bance, Dr A Biswas and Dr J L Webster. You will be advised when your doctor has a student with them in surgery and we will request your consent for the student to remain present during your consultation or treatment. We will respect your wishes if you choose not to give your consent.
We are involved also in various stages of the training of qualified doctors who are in the process of becoming General Practitioners (“GP Registrars”). The work of GP Registrars is monitored closely by the Yorkshire Postgraduate Centre and by nominated GP Partners of the Practice.
Your consultation with a GP Registrar will be just like any other GP appointment, but at times you might attend a joint surgery with both the GP Registrar and another of the Practice’s doctors. Also you may be asked to agree to the consultation being videoed. If you would prefer that the consultation is not videoed then you do not have to agree to this.
GP Registrars are timetabled to remain with the Practice normally for either 6 months or 12 months before moving on elsewhere to continue their training. "Rotations" occur on the first Wednesdays of February and August.
