We are a practice where Registrars come to train as General Practitioners and it is sometimes required to record their consultations on videotape. You will be advised in advance of this situation and will be asked at the time of attendance to give written consent. This will not interfere in anyway with your consultation and will be treated with strict confidentiality.
Medical Student Training
Teaching young doctors, medical students and student nurses is an important part of the work of the practice. You therefore may find a medical student in attendance with your GP during the consultation but please let the doctor know if you are unhappy about this.
The practice at times embarks on research felt to be relevant to the health of our patients. Any research that you may be invited to participate in will have been ethically approved and you have the option to decline should you prefer.
