The Surgery is an approved training practice for the training of General Practice Registrars (GPRs). Being an approved training practice means that:
- patients can directly contribute to the training of future GPs
- patients who consult with the GPR will have longer consultations
- it keeps all doctors and nurses keep in touch with new medical developments and skills
- It improves all doctors and nurse’s consultation and training skills
- It ensures that clinical standards and standards of medical record keeping are maintained
- It helps with recruitment of high quality doctors to the practice for job vacancies
GPRs are doctors in training who are qualified doctors and have already worked in hospitals as junior doctors for at least 3 years and have now decided that they would like to specialise in General Practice.
In order to qualify as a GP all doctors have to complete Postgraduate Specialist Training which includes at least 18 months training in General Practice.
The practice will be regularly assessed for its suitability for postgraduate training in general practice. This process includes an inspection of medical records for quality, NOT content. If you object to your record being seen for this process then you must let us know in writing so these notes can be withdrawn.
An essential component of training in all medical practice is the use of video and consultations with the both the GPR and the trainer present. We hope that all our patients will be willing to take part in these educational consultations to help us all in improving and maintaining our medical and consultation skills. All video recordings are strictly confidential and are used for teaching only. We will not video your consultation without your consent. Please inform Reception if you would prefer not to participate.
Doctors will spend up to 18 months working with Stanley Corner Medical Centre to complete their training so that they can practice as a GP. These Doctors (Registrar or Senior Registrar grade) will already have worked for several years at a hospital following qualification.
Why do you want to video my consulation?
Any of our doctors may sometimes ask your permission to record your consultation on video. These recordings form an excellent method of assessing doctor performance and are an essential part of a GP’s final training.
We ask for your cooperating in agreeing to participate.
No intimate examinations will be recorded, the camera can be switched off at any time on your request, and you can even change your mind and tell us not to use the video after the consultation has finished.
We hope you will be happy to help in ensuring that newly qualified GPs will be performing to the highest standard.
