GENERAL PRACTICE REGISTRARS
Our practice is a training practice. Our Registrars are fully qualified and have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to our practice for 12 months to enable them to train as a GP. Dr Deighan and Dr Maclean are responsible for training. You may be requested to participate in video consultations from time to time, this allows us to evaluate the progress of the Doctor, and help them prepare for exams.
Our practice also participates in the training of final year medical students in general practice. They have a wide experience of hospital work before their attachment to our practice.
Occasionally Nursing students are attached to the practice to offer them a wider experience of Primary Care. They will be encouraged to develop their skills and experience, under the supervision of fully qualified staff.
