The practice has been established as a training practice for more than 25 years and is committed to education and training for many health care professionals including doctors and medical students. Each year we have a new GP registrar attached to the practice. They will have had experience in several hospital specialities, but need general practice experience before becoming an independent practitioner. They are fully qualified doctors under our supervision.
We also teach undergraduate students from the University of Birmingham. You may be asked to see some of them on occasions to discuss your condition or they may sit in on your consultation with the doctor. You will be informed beforehand if a student is sitting-in. Please exercise your right to ask them to withdraw if you would prefer to see the doctor alone.
We have a new appointment booking system called eConsult.
