TEACHING INVOLVEMENT

This practice is committed to medical education.

Medical Students:

Occasionally when you come to see the doctor there may be a medical student present. The doctors are responsible for general practice teaching with Guys, Kings College and St. Thomas Hospital. If you would prefer that a student is not present, please let the reception staff, or the doctor know. From time to time the doctors may use video or audio equipment as part of their educational work. You will always be made aware of this and will have the opportunity to decline if you prefer not to take part. We take great care to safeguard patients' confidentiality.

 

Student Nurses Health Visitors and Physiotherapists: 

You may find student nurses and student health visitors sitting in on consultation sessions at the surgery. You may also meet them if they accompany either the district nurses or health visitors on home visits. (Students may be either male or female).
