Training in General Practice
Education & Training in the Practice
We are delighted to embark on becoming a Training Practice, which is a practice that trains doctors to be general practitioners.
To this goal, Dr Hilton has successfully completed a rigorous, yearlong Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education linked with the Oxford Brookes University, and Dr Easaw is already an established trainer.
The practice itself will have an official assessment by Health Education England in June 2017, and all being well, will then be approved for the postgraduate training of doctors.
The doctors we train will spend between 6 and 18 months with us and are fully qualified doctors, having worked for least two years as hospital doctors before coming to us.
As part of their on-going training, the doctors may ask to video a consultation. These will be done under the General Medical Council guidelines. If you want the camera turned off, please tell the receptionist - this is not a problem and will not affect your consultation in any way.
We highly value your support in training the GPs of tomorrow. You are at the centre of their training. We are confident that they will benefit hugely from their time with you and with us. We are sensitive to the fact that you may have questions, and welcome any you may have.
