Non-urgent advice: GP Training
We are a training practice. This means at any one time we may have up to two fully qualified doctors working with us who are preparing for a medical career. They have each completed part or all of their hospital training.
Drs Forshaw, Das Gupta and Ahmed are GP Trainers and oversee the progress of training doctors throughout their training programme (hospital and general practice). All the Partners and some of the salaried GPs are involved in supervising the trainees during their time with us, so there is always support and advice available should it be required.
For educational purposes you may be asked to allow your consultation with a training doctor to be recorded. If you decline your care will not be affected in any way. If you allow your consultation to be recorded it will be viewed only by the trainee(s) and GP Trainers and will be destroyed after a set time interval.
Current Training Doctors
We welcome any feedback from patients regarding our training doctors, and thank you for supporting them in their learning.
