The practice works in conjunction with the Oxford Deanery. The surgery is a Teaching Practice for doctors who wish to specialise in General Practice. The doctors are usually with the practice from between 6 months to 12 months each year. Each trainee is fully supported by a GP during each session.
- Registrars (in final year of GP training)
- Foundation Training Doctors. (Limited experience hospital doctors experiencing General Practice.)
With the supervision of the Doctor, a registrar or foundation doctor will see you on a 1.1 consultation. To ensure the trainee has plenty of time to consult with you, often your appointment may be up to 30 minutes in duration. Should the trainee need assistance or advice during the consultation a Doctor may attend during your consultation offering support.
To help in this training some consultations with your doctor may be recorded on video. This is for teaching purposes only. Your consultation with the doctor will only be recorded with your consent. You are under no obligation to agree to such recording. Your doctor will understand if you prefer not to have your consultation recorded.
You will not be identified during the consultation.
The surgery at times may also have Medical Students who are present at the surgery for a short period of time from between 4 weeks to 8 weeks. With the supervision of your Doctor or Nurse, medical students may, with your consent in advance, join your consultation. This is one way medical students learn to become good doctors and understand patient views about their care.
We appreciate your help with their learning.
