Specialist GP Training Program

The Practice are an accredited training Practice. This means that at any time there will be a GP Trainee / Trainees working alongside the established Partners. These doctors are fully qualified with hospital experience, and are attached to the Practice for 18 months of their Specialist GP Training Program, the remainder of which is undertaken in hospital.

They will be supervised when in practice by their Trainer. As part of their training they are expected to video a number of consultations and we are grateful to those patients who permit this.

The recorded consultations are:

  • used for analysis and assessment alongside their Trainer in order to improve and develop GP consulting skills
  • only done so with the express permission of the patient, and any patient can decline this
  • reviewed in confidence between the Trainee and Trainer for the purposes of training
  • stored safely or encrypted when awaiting review
  • erased once viewed

We may also ask our patients for feedback (Questionnaire) on the Trainees at specified times in their training.

We are very grateful to patients who assist us. Together we aim to ensure excellent GPs for the future.
