Teaching and Training

We are proud to be a teaching practice. We feel training other doctors and nurses is very important and also keeps us up to date.

We have 2 F2 Doctors working with us on 4 monthly rotations. F2 Doctors have done extensive hospital training already and although they will see you on their own they are always supervised by one of the GPs.

We also from time to time have other colleagues such as District Nurses training with us, we will always inform you and give you the choice to be seen on your own if you wish.
