A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor, typically with several years hospital experience, who is preparing to enter general practice by working in a practice for one year before moving on to a permanent post. This is a compulsory experience for any doctor wishing to enter general practice.
A Registrar attached to the practice operates as one of the GPs, but under the supervision and guidance of one of the partners in the practice. You may be offered an appointment with, or a home visit from, the GP Registrar.
As part of the training process, consultations with a GP Registrar may be video recorded. This will only be done with your prior consent and you have the right to decline.
The practice also trains Foundation level (F2) doctors. A foundation doctor is a grade of medical practitioner in the United Kingdom undertaking a two year general postgraduate medical training programme, which forms the bridge between medical school and specialist/general practice training. You may be offered an appointment with a foundation doctor.
From time to time we may have medical students assigned to work alongside our doctors to gain experience of General Practice work.
