The practice is actively involved in postgraduate training of doctors wishing to become GP's. Training GPs have several years hospital experience before they join the practice team. Dr Laurence and Dr Record are qualified GP trainers.
The practice also regularly takes groups of undergraduate medical students from the University of Bristol to familiarise them and provide them with an insight into the work of general practice.
Patients may, from time to time, be asked if they mind having another doctor present during their consultation, or if they mind their consultation being recorded for training purposes. The doctors fully understand that some patients may prefer not to have another doctor present or their consultation recorded and will always respect the wishes of the patient at these times.
