Training Practice

Our Practice is a recognised Training Practice and has a number of qualified ‘GP Trainers’ who participate in the training of doctors for work in General Practice.

We are proud to provide training for the next generation of doctor and nurses and are rated as “Excellent” by Health Education England as a provider of GP training. We have also been award the University of Exeter Medical School Award for Innovation and Excellence in medical student teaching.

You may at times be offered a appointment with a qualified doctor who is gaining experience in General Practice or asked if a student may be present while you consult with your own doctor.  You will be offered the opportunity to decline if you are not happy with this arrangement.

Dr Moffat, Dr Dunn and Dr Turner are our GP trainers and they also lead on Medical Student teaching within the Practice.

Staff Training

Occasionally between the hours of 12.30pm and 2.00pm we conduct staff training and meetings and our telephones may be switched over to our message handling system.

Protected Time for Learning and Team Development

Approximately three times a year the practice will hold a clinical teaching session which we called Quality Half Day. This protected time is used for various updates and training to take place. The practice employs locum GPs for this session to allow all GPs to attend and to minimise any disruption to patients care.

Emergency cover, as at weekends and evenings, is provided by NHS 111.
