This practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become General Practitioners. This means that the Practice and Doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by the GP Deanery for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, acting on behalf of the national organisation (the Joint Committee for Postgraduate Training in General Practice).
These are some points for your information: Those doctors training to become GP's are called GP Registrars. The GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor, who is likely to have a lot of experience in hospital medicine. If you are seeing this doctor, you can expect to receive the quality of service you would from your own GP. If you have any concerns, please mention this to a member of staff.
Sometimes it may be necessary for the GP Registrars to video record their consultations as part of their training, and in this case your permission will always be requested beforehand. The practice is also involved in the training of medical students and you may be asked if a medical student can sit in at your consultation.
We also host “Foundation Year 2” doctors on four-month attachments from St George’s Hospital Medical School who are qualified to see patients in their own right and again you can expect the same quality of service as from your GP. This increases our appointment availability and enhances our ability to care for our patients.
