Our practice is designated a training practice and we usually have a doctor with us who is training to work in general practice. This doctor works alongside our trainer, Dr Stagg. When you see our registrar you may be asked for consent to have the consultation videoed.
The practice also trains doctors from Tameside Hospital. These are known as foundation doctors and they spend four months in GP practice. Foundation doctors are supervised by Dr Edge. Spending time in a GP practice helps to give the hospital doctors a better understanding of the work involved in primary care.
Our practice has links with Manchester University and often we have third and fourth year medical students training in the practice and working alongside the doctors. We would really appreciate it if you would be willing to be interviewed by them when seeing your doctor.
