Training in General Practice - New Registrars

We are pleased to announce that two new Registrar GPs have joined The Allan Practice as of the 7th February 2018. Dr Riz Shaffiq will be with us until August 2020 and Dr Jay Angrish will be with us for six months.
Our very first registrar Dr Amit Bhardwaj has now moved on to his penultimate placement, and we know our patients will join us in wishing him all the best for his future career. 

Appointments with our current Registrars are available to book via Patient Access.

For training purposes the practice closes one afternoon a month to allow staff to have Protected Learning Time. On these dates the practice will close from 13:00 and open again as usual the following morning. If you need a doctor urgently during this time for a issue that cannot wait until the surgery is open again please call: 01296 850 011. For any medical emergencies please call: 999. Please see below for our closure dates for the next year.

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.

Videoing Consultations

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.

Maria Easaw and Elena Hilton
