Training GP Practice

The Elms Medical Practice is an approved 'Training Practice'.  We currently train GP Registrars and Medical Students.

GP Registrar

A GP Registrar will usually be with the practice for a year, helping them become a fully qualified GP.  They will hold their own surgeries and may sit in with GP's during their clinics.  Registrars will consult patients alone as they are qualified doctors specialising in General Practice.

Medical Students

A Medical Student is a healthcare professional in training. As part of their training the students spend time at the GP practice being mentored by GP trainers.  You may see the Medical Student on their own but the GP will be on hand if they need to seek advice or the GP may even sit in during the appointment.

If you do not feel comfortable with having an appointment with a Medical Student or them being present during an appointment you are under no obligation to agree to this, please inform a member of our reception team when you book your appointment or when you come to the surgery.

Video Recording

Video recording is sometimes used for training purposes but you will be asked for your permission by signing a declaration beforehand.  The video content is confidential and solely used for training purposes and assessment only.
