Our practice is approved for training registrar doctors who have chosen a career in general practice. GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have a great deal of hospital experience and wish to become a GP. They gain valuable experience by working with us for up to a year and share all aspects of medical care with the GP partners. Please accept their services as an extension of our own.
Sometimes as part of the registrars training, patients are requested to allow their consultation to be videotaped, these recordings are for educational purposes only. Your permission will always be requested beforehand, if you do not wish your consultation to be recorded just say so; your care will not be affected in any way.
We train medical students and nursing students from Edinburgh University. We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice. You will be informed of their presence in advance, and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected; your care will not be affected in any way.
