In 2004 Dr Chris Ellis became a GP Trainer. This has enabled him to train future GPs and his first registrar started with the practice in August 2004. The registrar will be with the practice for six months and during this time will be seeing patients here at the medical centre. Registrars are trained doctors who have decided to specialise in general practice.
During the training period you may be asked if you would mind your consultation being video-taped. This will enable both the registrar and the trainer to assess their progress and could be used as part of the formal examination process. All video-taped consultations require your signed consent and will be kept confidential.
