Doctor Confidentiality

It is compulsory for doctors who intend to become GPs to complete a full course of hospital training and a year’s supervised experience in general practice. Our surgery has been approved to take such doctors and each year there may be one working for us. They are fully qualified and experienced and we feel sure you will welcome their help.

As part of their training they are required to make a video-recording of some of their consultations. These are for educational purposes only, will only be seen (anonymously) by other doctors and will be erased afterwards. If this involves your consultation your permission will be requested and you are able to refuse and no offence will be taken – we perfectly understand the sensitivity of the situation.
