As our Practice is a teaching practice, we have a series of short term junior doctors similar to the hospital junior doctors. These experienced doctors are usually with us from four to six months. We have the responsibility of preparing them for the challenge of their own Practice. This of course constantly keeps us on our toes and in the mainstream of medical thought.
As part of our teaching commitment, from time to time we have medical students from Newcastle University at the practice to gain experience as part of their course. We hope you will be able to help them with their training but if you do not wish to have them present when you see the doctor, please feel free to say so.
