GPs 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 Love is currently the GP registrar at the practice.

Medical Students

Medical students are sometimes attached to the practice for 5-7 weeks as part of their training. The practice currently have both 4th and final year medical students on rotation from Aberdeen Medical School at various times through the year. Any patient contact they have will always be supervised by a fully qualified clinician. If you do not wish a student to be present during your consultation, please inform the receptionist.
