This practice has been accredited as being suitable for the training of those doctors intending to become General Practitioners.This means that the Practice and the Doctors have had to achieve a number of standards which have been assessed by the GP Deanery for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, acting on behalf of the national organisation (the Joint Committee for Postgraduate Training in General Practice)
These are some points for your information:-
1. Those doctors training to become GPs are called GP registrars.
2. The GP registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is likely to have a lot of experience of hospital medicine.
3. If you are seeing this doctor you can expect to receive the quality of service you would expect from your own GP. If you have any concerns please mention this to a member of staff.
4. In order for the GP registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done, in part, by the appointed assessors viewing a video of the registrar's consultations.You may be asked for your permission to have your consultation recorded in this way.If you agree, you will be asked to sign a consent form. If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a form, please tell him or her immediately. The recording will be for educational purposes only. If you have any questions please ask our reception staff.
Please ask at reception for any further information you may need.
