GP Registrars and Medical Students
As a training practice, we usually have a doctor attached to the surgery who is working through their three years of additional training to qualify as a GP. This process is based on a mentoring approach, and they consult sometimes independently with a GP available for advice when needed and sometimes in a joint surgery.
Occasionally medical students are attached to the practice and sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse 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.
