Training

 

The practice has been established as a training practice for more than 25 years and is committed to education and training for many health care professionals including doctors and medical students. Each year we have a new GP registrar attached to the practice. They will have had experience in several hospital specialities, but need general practice experience before becoming an independent practitioner. They are fully qualified doctors under our supervision.

Medical Students

We also teach undergraduate students from the University of Birmingham. You may be asked to see some of them on occasions to discuss your condition or they may sit in on your consultation with the doctor. You will be informed beforehand if a student is sitting-in. Please exercise your right to ask them to withdraw if you would prefer to see the doctor alone.

You may receive a text from us asking you to give consent to being seen by a student either to be interviewed by a student, to give you medical history details or to be examined by a student.  If you receive a text like this please read the relevant statement below and reply to the text to give your consent.

Thank you


CONSENT TO BE INTERVIEWED BY A MEDICAL STUDENT (STUDENT DOCTOR)

 

We would be very grateful if you would consider taking part in the medical student training that this practice undertakes. They are studying at Birmingham Medical School as part of a 4 or 5 year course and expect to qualify as doctors as a result. The interview will be done over a video call or telephone call, following confidentiality guidance.

CONSENT FOR GIVING A MEDICAL HISTORY

 

I agree that a medical student or students may talk to me about my medical condition, under the supervision of the GP, and that the arrangement has been explained to me to my satisfaction. I also agree that my medical history can be used so that students can learn more about illness. I understand that if I do not wish to be seen by a student at any time I can withdraw my consent and my care will not be affected in any way.

 

Please reply to the text message so that we know you are happy to proceed.

 

 

 

CONSENT FOR BEING EXAMINED (this will be discussed with you specifically if it is required)

 

I also agree that a medical student or students may examine me, under the supervision of the GP, and that the arrangement has been explained to me to my satisfaction. I understand that if I do not wish to be examined by a student at any time I can withdraw my consent and my care will not be affected in any way.
