Locum doctors

From time to time, locum doctors may be employed by the practice.  They are fully qualified doctors with experience in general practice.

Teaching

We are a training practice and have a fully qualified doctor who works with us during the Registrar year in General Practice.  On occasion the GP Registrar may wish to record your consultation on video.

Video Recording of Consultations

From time-to-time your doctor may wish to record patient consultations. Should he/she wish to do this, the receptionist will ask you to complete a consent form when you arrive for your appointment.  The video consultation will not take place without your consent and should you wish to participate, please sign the consent form and return it to reception.  You may change your mind at any stage and the camera must be switched off on request.  Videos are used for training purposes and are only seen by the doctor.
