At times we have medical students on placement within the practice, observing and learning from our doctors and nurses. Medical students are doctors in training and gain great benefit from interacting with our staff and patients.
We also occasionally have six form students on placement who are planning to apply to train as doctors and wish to gain an insight into our role before doing so.
You will always be told if the doctor or nurse that you are seeing has a student with them. You can choose not to have the student sit in during the consultation, just let our receptionist know or tell the doctor or nurse when you are called in.
