Training Training

Since November 2007 we have been recognised as a teaching practice. We have medical students from local medical schools and are involved in training. We are training these students /future doctors in particular areas of general practice. We have a strict educational timetable which have been provided by our local medical school.

How does this affect the patient?

This will not affect your care. It may be the doctor may ask your permission for trainee doctors/medical students to be present when you see your doctor.

What if i don't want students to be there when i see my doctor?

That is not a problem.We will simply ask the students to leave the room. This will NOT affect your care.


Welcome to the practice. We hope this will be an enjoyable learning experience for you. Should there be any issues please contact our Practice manager or alternatively our lead tutor- Dr Jason John.


Our tutor/ practice manager will introduce you to the practice and show you around. We are currently based on two sites- King Edwards Medical centre and Thames View Medical Centre. Initially you will be based in King Edwards Medical Centre for teaching unless otherwise specified.

You will be given an INDUCTION PACK. This provides all information, this will be normally given at the practice on the first day. Please return them on finishing your time with us.


You will be given a rota which includes all doctors / nurses who will embark on your training. Should there be any changes, students will be informed in advance.

Theoretical sessions will be undertaken in the Seminar Room in King Edwards Medical Centre.
