We are a training practice, which means that we have been approved for undergraduate and post-graduate training of future GP’s. ST1, 2, 3 are fully qualified doctors preparing to enter general practice and their training is supervised by Dr Milne and Dr Watson. They normally stay with us for up to year. The doctor in training sees patients in his or her own clinics. Some of this training involves analysis of videotaped consultations, and so you may be asked for permission to record your consultation. (However, this will only be done with your written consent, and if you decide not to have the consultation recorded, it will not affect the care you receive in any way).
