The future of general practice is dependent on recruiting and training of new doctors to high standards. Dr Fowler is responsible for training medical students and junior doctors. This means that we often have a foundation year doctor in the surgery. They will be working under GP supervision at all times. Dr Frain will be working towards becoming a trainer also.
We have links to the university of Leeds Medical School and have already had successful placements of medical students at the practice. The understanding and cooperation of our patients in this has been wonderful. You should always be made aware at the time of booking your appointment if any student is timetabled to be with your GP or nurse and given the option for them not to be present.
We also have work- shadowing placements for 16- 18 year old students.
