Teaching Practice

Medical, Pharmacy and Nursing Students attend the Practice from time-to-time.  We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the Trainee Doctors & Students to learn about General Practice.  However, you will be informed of their presence in advance and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected.  This will not affect your treatment in any way.

If possible please try to phone before 10 a.m.  A doctor may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.  House visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
