We have a range of clinicians who, as well as their clinical work, undertake teaching and assessment of other healthcare practitioners. These include qualified nurses, doctors and nursing/medical students who are undertaking professional education and training courses. At all times trainees are supervised by a senior clinician.
We can provide excellent learning experiences in the practice and we hope that patients will be pleased to be part of this. You will always be asked if you consent to having a student/trainee present during a consultation.
Occasionally a clinician may want to video record his/her consultations for study to help them improve their skills. Again you will be asked if you consent to this, and you are free to say no.
