Doctors in Training

Our practice is approved to train fully qualified doctors who wish to specialise in general practice. Our GP registrar will have had 2-4 years of experience as a qualified hospital doctor working in various specialities. They consult patients on their own, under the mentorship of our trainer, Dr Thomson and Dr Hornsby. Occasionally we ask permission to video a consultation. You will always be asked in advance and are given the option not to take part and this will not affect your care in any way. No recording will be taken without your consent and the camera will be switched off on request. These videos are used only for educational purposes with the doctor doing the consultation and are destroyed after use. Dr Jindal is currently the GP registrar at the practice.

Emergency Care Team (Duty Team)

The Emergency Care team, or Duty Team, is made up of Emergency Care Practitioners and Advanced Nurse Practitioners. This team provides our same day consultations for a range of acute illnesses, such as sore throats, chest infections, urine infections and back or abdominal pain. They can issue prescriptions and always have at least one duty Doctor working alongside them every session. Please give the receptionist as much detail as possible when you call so we can provide the duty team with everything they need to know.
