We are proud to be a long-established training practice. As part of our teaching commitment, doctors and Practice Managers from other practices occasionally visit the medical centre to assess our standards and suitability to train GP’s.
Additionally, doctors occasionally video their consultations to assess and improve their skills. We will always seek your consent before this takes place and you can of course decline. As you would expect, the normal strict rules of confidentiality apply to these processes.
GP Registrar Training
GP Registrars are attached to the practice as part of the North Oxfordshire GP Training Scheme. They are a FULLY QUALIFIED DOCTOR having already completed several years of hospital training. They usually join us for a six month attachment or for one year to complete their specialist GP Training. Dr Stevens, Dr Harrison, Dr Parsons and Dr Beardsworth are GP trainers and are currently responsible for GP registrar training.
Medical Student Teaching
Occasionally we are joined by medical students. They will sit in on surgeries, accompany doctors and nurses on visits and may see some patients on their own briefly before being joined by the supervising professional. You will be informed if a medical student is present and be given the opportunity to say if you do not wish them to be there when you see the doctor or nurse.
Dr Parsons is currently responsible for medical student training in the practice.
Continued Professional Development and Protected Learning Time
We are all committed not only to help train new health care professions, but to continue the development of our own knowledge and skills.
To that end, we regularly have clinical and team meetings for education as well as to cover business and administration matters.
