General Practitioner Trainees
Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our Trainees are fully qualified with at least three years hospital experience and have chosen general practice as a career; they are usually attached to your surgery for 12 months. They provide care of the same standard as that given by the other doctors within the practice, and will refer to the partner who is their trainer if necessary.
Qualified doctors gaining experience in general practice after qualification and who are supervised by one of the partners who is their trainer.
ST3 trainees are qualified for at least 4 years (2 foundation years and 2 years of GP vocational training including 6 months in GP Practice).
We are fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. This is an opportunity for them to learn about general practice.
If there is a medical student in with the GP when you attend your appointment you will be asked if you are happy for them to remain in the room. Please do not worry about asking for a private consultation with the GP if this is what you wish.
The Adam Practice is fortunate to be involved in Student Nurse Training. This is an exciting opportunity for them to learn about Practice Nursing, they are fully supported by Trained Practice Nurses during their placement.
If you do not wish the student nurse to remain present during your appointment, please do not worry to ask for a private consult with the Nurse.
