Teaching and Training Practice

We are a teaching practice and have been approved for ‘hub and spoke’ clinical supervision in close working arrangement with Castle street medical centre. Medical students from University of Sheffield and doctors in training (GP Registrars) will now be present at the practice from time to time.

We teach the junior medical students who spend most of their time learning about common problems in general practice along with opportunities to discuss relevant clinical scenarios with consented patients. We are very grateful for the support of our patients with this very successful programme.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are undergoing training to become GPs. They will be trained and supervised by our GPs. During a registrar’s time within practice, a major part of their training is in developing understanding of a range of primary care problems and improving their consultation techniques.

With the consent of the individual patient, there will be occasional video recording of patient consultations in order to discuss their style and any issues with their GP trainer. Patients who consent to have their consultations recorded can be assured of strict confidentiality and that once reviewed, the recording will be erased.
