The Park Road Surgery has been a teaching and training practice since 1984 and participates in the advanced training of qualified doctors who have had extensive hospital experience and who wish to enter general practice.
The ‘GP Registrar’ joins the Practice for a period of twelve months whereas 'foundation' and 'innovative training program' doctors join the practice for four to six months and are occasionally part time.
Dr Nicolette Potts, Dr Nicholas Grundy and Dr Julian Bradley are GP Trainers with overall responsibility for education, but training involves all staff at the Practice, clinical and non clinical. Dr. Sean Gallagher has responsibility for training F2 Doctors, who also have placements at this practice.
The Practice is visited and assessed both as a teaching organisation and healthcare provider on a regular basis by the London Deanery, which is part of the University of London.
Occasionally within the consultation the Dr in training may video a consultation, or have another Dr sitting in and observing. Your consent will be requested and you are always at liberty to decline.
We very much value teaching and education and believe in the benefit it brings to all involved.
