We strongly believe in an ethos of teaching both within our own staff and externally. Three of the doctors have postgraduate certificates in teaching medical education with a fourth doctor working towards this. We teach medical students from Cambridge University and Imperial College School of Medicine and have done this for over 16 years.
The students will ask you permission to confirm you are happy to see them. This is voluntary. Please feel free to decline if you are not happy with this, or ask to speak to one of the supervising doctors.
The practice has been re-approved as a Training Practice which allows us to help develop the next generation of General Practitioners and Hospital Doctors. From August 2014 we have been training both GP Registrars and Foundation Year Doctors. These members of staff are qualified doctors and will introduce themselves to you and explain their role within the practice. These doctors rotate every 3-4months and move between different GP surgeries and hospital roles. Your feedback is helpful for their development. Being a training practice has helped our recruitment – in the last year we have recruited 3 local trainees.
