Extended Access - A new service is starting on the 2nd July 2018 for all patients in Stevenage called Extended Access.  This service offers additional Doctor and Advanced Nurse Practitioner appointments outside of surgery hours - these are for routine appointments only and can be booked by calling the practice in the usual way.  Please see our 'Latest News' section for more details.



DIABETIC OPEN EVENING - MONDAY 2ND JULY 2018


What an informative and interesting evening we had!  Approximately 40 patients together with our PPG members attended St.Josephs Church in Bedwell Crescent to listen to advice regarding Diabetes.  The open evening was very well received and most informative.  We thank our speaker Janice Fuller for sharing her knowledge and look forward to another event in the near future.


Training & Research

gp_and_bookWe are an accredited training practice and firmly believe that having medical students, ST1, ST2 or ST3 doctors, be it for one day, four months, or one year is proving to be a great success.

It is a very rewarding experience to have them with us, especially knowing that some of these trainees may very well go on to specialise in General practice.

People who wish to become doctors study medicine at university. This is a 5 (or sometimes 6) year course. Courses vary in how they are organised but most start with theoretical learning about anatomy, physiology, biochemistry etc. and then in the final years focus more on patient based learning.

ST1, ST2 and ST3 doctors are already qualified doctors. They are receiving further training to become a General Practictioner.

Medical Students

Medical students at the Bedwell & Roebuck Surgeries will be in their final year of study, meaning that if they are successful in their final exams they will become doctors that August. If you are seen by a medical student there will ALWAYS be one of our fully qualified GPs or nurse’s with them.

Patients often like to see students as they have much more time to talk (they have 30 minute appointments compared to 10 for a GP).

GP Speciality Training / The Foundation Programme 

The Foundation Programme is a two-year training programme for doctors after leaving medical school.  It is designed to provide the trainees with a range of experience prior to choosing their area of speciality.

The ST2 (Year 2) doctors spend a 4 month period with us where they will see patients by themselves, however our fully qualified GP’s will always review them periodically during their clinic sessions. It is designed to give trainees a range of experience before choosing an area of medicine in which to specialise.

The ST3 (Year 3) doctors (previously known as Registrars) spend a whole year with us and have their own clinics to see patients. They will have weekly tutorials with our trainee GP and receive daily supervision.

Research

We are part of the NHS Research Network through the CCG. From time to time we will ask patients if they wish to participate in research activity. Participation is voluntary, and refusal will not affect the level of care you receive in any way.
