We are an approved practice under the Northumbria Vocational Training Scheme (NVTS), Foundation Doctor Scheme and via the University of Northumbria. This means that we often have fully qualified doctors (Foundation and GP Registrars) gaining experience in general practice working within the practice under the guidance of his/her trainer.
In addition to the above, we also regularly host undergraduate Medical Students, who are undergoing training by our qualified doctors. If you do not wish to have your consultation observed by one of the students, please advise a member of reception who will inform your GP prior to your appointment.
If you book your appointment with a member of the reception team you will be informed that a medical student will be present. If you are booking online, the appointment type will state "Medical student present".
