We are a teaching and training Practice, approved for undergraduate teaching by the University of Cambridge Medical School and the University of East Anglia Medical School, and for postgraduate training by the NHS Eastern Deanery. Students from both medical schools, as well as nursing students, attend at different times throughout the year and at different stages in their training, and you may be asked if you mind seeing a medical student before or during your consultation with a doctor or nurse.
We greatly appreciate your willingness to help in the training of future doctors in this way, and most people find it a rewarding experience. However, we do understand that there may be occasions when you prefer not to see a student – please let Patient Services know before your consultation if that is the case.
We also have qualified doctors attached to the Practice for extended periods as part of their professional training. They are able to conduct consultations on their own, but their work is under the supervision of fully qualified GPs.
