Trainee Doctors & Medical Students

Teaching and training is an important part of our work and we help train the next generation of Doctors and Health Professionals. We are an Approved Training Practice for Foundation Doctors and GP Specialist Trainee Doctors. This means our lead Doctors and the Practice as a whole have passed the strict approval process of Health Education England to show we have reached the required standards to train young doctors and other healthcare professionals. Drs Dodhia and Mehrali lead our training programmes.

Currently we train Foundation Year 2 doctors and General Practice Specialist Trainees (GP Registrars) and may also have undergraduate Medical Students and other Allied Health Professionals such as Nurses in the practice. They are all part of approved training programmes overseen by academic and regulatory authorities and their work is carefully monitored and evaluated.

You may be allocated appointments with one of these young professionals – you will always be asked if you are happy with this and they will introduce themselves to you. We may have a student or young professional sitting in a consultation with your usual doctor – you will always be warned and given the option of them leaving if you prefer. We may video record the consultation – you will be asked to give written consent and will not record it if you prefer.
