Training Practice

gp_and_bookWe are an accredited training practice.

We accept training placements for:

  • Medical Students
  • ST1 doctors
  • ST2 doctors
  • ST3 doctors

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

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 minutes 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.
