Our practice was assessed and achieved ” GPR Training Status” in 2012 and we started to teach GP registrars’ from 1st August 2012.
Our Qualified GP Trainer is Dr N R Kolla
A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor who has opted for a career as a GP and requires some additional training.
You would always be given the option if you would like to be seen by a GP registrar or a GP of your choice.
The GP registrar will always be supervised (directly or indirectly) by a GP who is a qualified GP Trainer.
Becoming accredited as a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something which we earnestly value and treasure!
As part of their training the GP registrars have to video record some of their consultations as part of their assessment. You may be asked by the receptionists if you would be happy to take part in this if you have an appointment with the GP registrar. At any time you are able to say “no” to being videotaped and this will not prejudice the way your consultation is viewed or handled in any way. If you are happy to be videotaped the receptionist will ask you to read a letter about the process and to sign a consent form. At the end of your consultation, if you don’t wish the tape to be used, you can state this and the tape will be erased.
Please feel free to contact our practice manager to share with us any thoughts or suggestions or concerns you may have with regards to the practice being a Teaching practice
