The practice is approved for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training.
These fully qualified doctors from the Northwick Park Training Scheme are attached to the surgery to gain post-graduate experience in general practice. A registrar will have a number of years' experience in a hospital environment typically covering Accident and Emergency, Maternity, Geriatric, Paediatric, General Surgery and other specialities.
It is normal for us to have two registrars within the practice at any one time. Each has a GP trainer that they work with (either Dr Rajani or Dr Goel).
The registrar will:
- Consult jointly with the GP trainer
- Under guidance of the GP Trainer, provide routine surgeries
(Consultations are reviewed by the GP trainer with the registrar)
- Complete home visits and undertake all normal duties of a GP
During their time with the surgery registrars may video the consultation for training purposes only. The video is of the discussion with the patient only; no medical examination is recorded. You will always be asked for your consent, both before and after the consultation, if you agree to be videoed. The video is treated in the strictest confidence and is purely for the registrars' development and training.
Students from London Medical Schools are attached to the surgery to learn about general practice. We appreciate the help given to us by patients who volunteer to attend teaching sessions that enable medical students to learn about different medical conditions.
