Medical Students

We are periodically involved in the teaching of students within the practice. There is no obligation to have a student sitting in during your consultation but we would obviously appreciate your co-operation. All students are in the final part of their course.


Our policy, with regard to the review of medication, is to involve our community pharmacist. For this purpose he may require access to your medical records and therefore like our doctors and staff he is bound by the strict code of confidentiality.
