*NEW TELEPHONE SYSTEM*
Over the next two weeks we will be transferring our telephone system to a new provider,
with the completion date scheduled for 19th December 2019.
We do not anticipate any major disruptions to the services, but there may be some downtime to our phone lines and therefore
we would like to ask for your understanding and patience whilst we undergo this transition.
The Old Station Surgery team
We are delighted and proud to announce that we have achieved approval as a training practice,
helping qualified doctors complete their specialist training to become qualified GPs.
This role is termed a GP registrar.
We plan to take on our first GP registrar from August 2019.
We welcome our new GP registrar, Dr Khan (female).
GP registrars are active team members with a full part in the work of the surgeries, seeing patients, doing telephone consultations, home visits and attending practice meetings.
They tend to have 4-12 month placements with the surgery. Their work is supervised by our approved GP trainer (Dr Zaklama), but you will find much of the time
they are consulting patients independently. It is a vital part of their learning that they experience the various challenges of general practice,
in addition to regular joint/observed surgeries and teaching sessions with their trainers.
You may be asked for your permission to video your consultation (excluding clinical examinations) in order that this recording can be used in a teaching session between
GP trainer and GP registrar. These recordings are deleted immediately after use, and permission can be refused prior to OR after a recording has taken place.
Your refusal will not affect your treatment in any way.
You will be informed at the point of booking your appointment if your consultation will be with a GP registrar.
You can still choose to consult with another doctor of your choosing at the practice, but to do so may require you to wait longer for a consultation.
We would stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by rules of strict confidentiality.
It is our belief and aspiration that achieving training practice status will enhance the quality of care we provide,
by allowing the surgery to benefit from fresh ideas and new approaches brought by young, enthusiastic doctors.
Patients will additionally benefit from an availability of a wider range of clinicians with which to consult,
with a greater variety of skills and training.
By maintaining our status as a training practice, we will be able to demonstrate the consistent high standards
of clinical care we provide for our patients, as is required to remain an active training practice.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing
specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues.
The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
