Trainee GP Registrars

We are a training practice for GP Registrars. A GP Registrar is an experienced doctor who has decided to specialise in general practice to become a GP. The Registrar is fully supervised by one of our qualified doctors. You will be told when you book your appointment if you are seeing the Registrar. You may choose to see a GP instead. The practice is inspected for training which involves examination of medical records. Only approved doctors will do this and they will respect the confidentiality of all information. The Registrar is usually based in the practice initially for a few months and then they return for a longer period at a later date.
