GP Training Practice
The Swan Practice is proud to be an accredited training practice, involved in training qualified doctors, known as registrar doctors to complete the final stages of training before they enter General Practice. We have up to 3 registrar doctors at any one time, who stay with us between 6 months and 3 years and each is supervised by an experienced GP trainer.
On occasion, patients may be invited to give consent for the registrar doctor to video the consultation. This is an important learning tool to help the registrar doctor improve and develop their consultation skills. The recordings are deleted after being viewed by the GP trainer.
We have been a training practice since 2005 and have found that registrar doctors bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm and are valued by both the practice and the patients.
