Doctors and nurses can only learn their jobs by working with patients and we are grateful when you allow them to be involved in your care.
If you are unsure about any practitioner’s level of training and experience, please ask – they will be happy to tell you.
Appointments with learners may take longer than those with fully trained practitioners. Please bear this in mind when you book.
Sometimes we may ask if we can video a consultation so that doctors can observe and improve their skills. There is no obligation to agree to this. We will only video consultations if you have signed a consent form beforehand and, if for any reason you change your mind after the consultation, we will wipe the tape. We will not video intimate examinations.
Videos are kept strictly confidential, and are normally viewed by the learner and their supervisor, although they may be seen by an external examiner (also a GP); they are destroyed at the end of the training period.
