We are an approved training practice with the Oxford PGDME Deanery. Our doctor Trainers may have a junior doctor or student with them. You will be informed of this by our receptionist. Please say if you do not want the student to be present during your consultation. Occasionally, our trainee GP Registrars, as part of their training need to undertake video consultations. Again you may be invited to participate in having your consultation video’d for later discussion between the Trainer and the Registrar. Find out more...
