HALF DAY CLOSURE


Tuesday 10th October 2017 


If you need URGENT medical attention call


The GP Out of Hours Service NHS 111


Pharmacy2U


It has come to our attention that many local residents have received a promotional letter from a company called Pharmacy2U. Please be aware that this is a marketing tactic from an on line pharmacy company based in Leeds and if you sign up (or 'nominate') them to be your pharmacy by returning the form with the letter, they will send your repeat medication via the Royal Mail. If you have received a letter from Pharmacy2U and are happy with your current nominated pharmacy and how you receive your medication, please ignore it.

Our practice participates in the advanced training of doctors for general practice.

These doctors, known as GP Trainees or registrars, are fully qualified doctors and have experience of hospital posts prior to joining us. They work with us for either 6 months or one year and share all aspects of medical care in liaison with the Partners. More recently we have also been involved in training of more junior doctors. These doctors spend 4 months with us as part of their overall specialist training. A number of these doctors will want to be Consultants within hospitals and a fair proportion will want to become General Practitioners and may return as GP Trainees.

We have been a training practice since 1992, and Dr Hallam is primarily responsible for training these junior doctors. All the Partners however take part in the education and training of these colleagues. The training involves teaching, confidential discussion of clinical cases, observing videos of the doctors carrying out patient consultations and also surgeries where the trainer sits in and observes.

At times you may be offered an appointment in either a video surgery or a shared surgery, which is for the purpose of educating these junior doctors. For the patient, participation in these surgeries is optional so if you feel uncomfortable about doing this please inform reception.

Student Doctors

Our practice participates in the training of student doctors. We support, train and develop students throughout their 5 year qualifying period at University, before further training as a doctor. To support their development, meeting patients, understanding health care and the management of this, plays an essential part to their learning journey. Your support is much appreciated in helping us develop doctors of the future. Patients will always be asked to confirm they are happy to see student doctors prior to their appointment.


Student Nurses

Our practice also participates in the training of student nurses.  Student nurses are mentored by the nursing team.  They attend during their second year of training at Wolverhamptom University.
