We are a practice dedicated to enhancing the service we provide through on-going training for all our staff.
We are also a recognized training practice and a number of qualified Doctors as well as Medical Students join our team to gain clinical experience.
For a period of six months or a year, a GP registrar joins the practice and is available for consultation. He or she will be a fully qualified doctor who will have worked mainly in the hospital, and will be gaining the experience required to become a general practitioner. You may be asked to take part in a video recording of a consultation for training purposes only. If so, written permission will be requested and you are at liberty to refuse.
Medical Students and Foundation Year 2 Doctor
Through collaboration with the Hull York Medical School (HYMS0) we also train year 3 and year 5 students who are doing a medicine degree. These students are with us on 8 week placements. Again through HYMS we also train Foundation Year 2 Doctors (fully qualified Doctors who are in the final foundation year after getting their degree). These Doctors are with us on 4 month placements.
At various stages of their training student nurses will be allocated to us to gain experience in a GP setting. They will always be supervised by one of the Nursing Team. Sometimes they will be observing, at other times they will be performing the skills they have learned. You may be asked for permission for students to undertake the consultation and you are at liberty to refuse at any time.
We are often asked to have students from 6th Form school or colleges and students undertaking specialist course such as first responders, physiotherapists, occupational therapists etc. So they may occasionally be observing consultations. You will be asked for your consent for these students to remain in the room and can refuse at any stage of the consultation.
