GP Trainees

Dr Annabel Hall, Dr Rafea Khan and Dr Alex Smith (currently on maternity leave)

The surgery also hosts Doctors that are completing their training to become GPs.  These qualified Doctors may be clinicians, who for example, have decided after a period of time working in a hospital setting, they would like to leave that environment and become a GP.

They have joined a local training programme and spend time in our surgery to obtain experience working in a Primary Care setting.  At present, we have three Trainees.  You may find that they ask if you mind them videoing your consultation with them to support their learning.  

They are mentored by our doctors who are qualified Trainers.  The whole Practice is involved in their training.

We also host hospital doctors who have chosen to experience a rotation of their latest training in Primary Care.  At the moment, Dr Safeena Daroge is working with us at the Practice.
