Carnon Downs Surgery - Training Practice
Carnon Downs Surgery is an accredited Training Practice which means that we meet the high standards of clinical care set by the Peninsula Deanery to teach medical students and qualified doctors in their foundation and specialist years. You may be asked to see one of them and your agreement ensures that our future doctors get the necessary experience and are well trained. All learners are closely supervised by one of our permanent GPs. The GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors and have a great deal of medical experience. They are attached to the practice for up to 12 months and usually become general practitioners after completing their training. As part of their final training they are encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice doctors.
The GP Registrars are required to produce video recordings of some of their consultations as part of their training. We may occasionally request your consent to video these consultations to be used in general practice training. Please be assured you can decline to participate at any time with no prejudice to your care. However, we would stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by rules of strict confidentiality and no examinations are filmed.
