As an approved training practice we are allocated a Registrar Doctor (ST3) for the final 12 months of their training, or a pre-Registrar Doctor (ST2) for 6 months of their training. These training Registrar doctors usually begin their attachments in August and work with us until July the following year. Patients can book appointments to see the training Registrar Doctors in the normal way.
We are also a training practice for Queens University, Belfast and The University of Ulster, Magee.
We are allocated medical students from Year 1 to final year at various periods throughout the year. These medical students may be sitting in with the doctor/nurse/physio or mental health worker during your consultation as part of their training.
You will always be asked if you consent to this. If you do not, please inform the receptionist when checking-in or inform the Clinician in the consulting room.
We sometimes have trainee counsellors attached to the practice for 12-month periods. Patients with mild or moderate depression or anxiety may be referred.
