We are a training practice and have qualified doctors gaining general practice experience working with us.
The GP Registrar is mentored by our doctors and very occasionally video record their consultations, which are only viewed by the mentoring doctor. They may also ask you to complete an assessment questionnaire, to give feedback on your consultation. You will always be asked to consent to this before entering the consultation room. You do not have to agree, but all feedback is useful for the registrar’s assessment.
