Foundation Year (FY2) Doctors in Training
The practice is accredited as a Training Practice for Foundation Year Doctors.
Foundation Year doctors are fully qualified doctors who are with the practice for four months. FY doctors are supervised by other GPs in the practice. You may be offered an appointment with them, but you are not obliged to see them if you choose not to. You may find that the FY doctor sometimes sits in with other doctors or nurses during their consultations.
Occasionally, consultations may be video recorded for educational purposes. This will only take place if you consent to it.
Teaching Medical Students
Student doctors visit the practice at intervals. You will be told if a student is present and are welcome to tell the receptionist if you would prefer to see the doctor alone.
You may be asked for permission to video a consultation for teaching purposes.
