Teaching and Training

We are a Training Practice. This involves the training of doctors who wish to become GPs. These doctors are fully qualified and are undertaking further training to specialise in General Practice. They are called GP Registrars and work under supervision. Registrars are attached to the practice for 4 – 18 months. Videotaping and audio recording of consultations may take place with your consent. Patient records may be inspected by medical organisations assessing Training Practices. We also regularly have medical students from the University of Nottingham observing the clinical staff as part of their training. Confidentiality is always maintained.

Training Afternoons

Every two months (but sometimes more often) the practice will be closed on a Tuesday afternoon to allow protected training time for the staff. See our latest news page for any upcoming dates for this. This is so staff can keep up to date with changes and developments which affect the practice.  On these afternoons the surgery will be closed from midday and re-open the next day at 8am. Any urgent medical needs will be directed to the out-of-hours service. The phone number for this is – 0115 846 2380. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but these sessions are essential to the practice.
