We are a training practice and take Medical Students from the University of Southampton, Physician Associate Students from the University of Surrey, post graduate Doctors and GP Registrars.
GP Specialist Trainee Registrars (GPStR's) are fully qualified doctors who have spent a further two years in hospital training. They then spend one year with us to gain more experience in General Practice before qualifying as a GP.
In order for the GP registrars to successfully complete their training they need to be assessed on their consulting skills. This is done 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 need to give your written permission and there is a consent form available at the desk, which you will be offered.
If the doctor appears to be recording your consultation and you have not signed a consent form, then you should indicate this to him or her immediately. The recording will be used for educational purposes only. Further information about this process and the confidentiality of it, can be obtained from the reception staff.
