Registrars

This is a training practice where qualified and often very experienced hospital doctors, who wish to pursue a career in general practice, are trained. Each doctor usually works with us for one year. Occasionally medical students join the practice for a short period as part of their training – if you do not wish them to sit in on consultations, please let the doctor know.
