We are delighted to announce that the practice is now a training practice. We provide medical training for Registrars who are fully qualified Doctors intending to enter General Practice. You may be offered a consultation with our GP registrar
The Reddish Family Practices have been approved as a Learning Environment. Dr Nurcombe is our approved specialist registrar trainer. A speciality registrar trainer (also known as ST3) is a fully qualified doctor that is intending to become a GP. They require longer appointments with patients whilst training (20 minutes). The trainee is usually with the practice for 12 months.
Dr Gandy is our approved general practice foundation trainer (FY2). An FY2 is also a fully qualified doctor and can see patients independently; they will see fewer patients than a ST3 and have longer appointment times (approx. 30 minutes). The trainee is usually with the practice for four months.
On occasion doctors and the trainees will need to do video consultations, video consent forms are available for the patient to sign and these can be found in the filing cabinets at reception at both sites.
