Visiting Doctors and Students

Other doctors join us for advanced training to become family doctors – they are fully qualified and already have extensive experience of hospital work. They usually spend a year in the practice. We also help to train medical students and you might meet nurses and health visitors who are under supervised training. You may see the doctor or nurse alone if you wish – just ask!
