GP Trainees/Registrars GP registrars are doctors undergoing specialist GP training.
As part of their training programme, they spend 6-12 months working in the practice before they are assessed to become fully qualified GPs.
The trainee will see most patients independently, but has a GP Trainer, Dr Crawshaw, to supervise their work and education.
Foundation year 2 Doctors We are also sometimes involved in training recently qualified doctors.
The rest of their two year foundation programme is spent working in hospitals. “F2” doctors see some patients independently but will always discuss their patients with a supervising GP.
Video Recording Consultations GPs in training are required to video record consultations with patients at times for further training, and assessment of consultation skills. No patient is obliged to participate, 9 and signed consent before and after a recorded consultation must be obtained from any patient. The video recording is deleted once the training and assessment is completed
