This Practice has been accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners.
The practice needs to be regularly inspected for this purpose, and this involves inspection of the medical records. Only doctors approved for this purpose will do this, and they will respect completely the confidentiality of the information.
Patient records may only be disclosed with written permission. Patients may therefore be asked to sign a letter of authorisation to permit this. No patient records will be included in the inspection visit without such authorisation.
Sometimes the doctor may wish to video record their consultations, and in this case once again your written consent will always be requested beforehand, the video is used with their GP Trainer to highlight strengths and weaknesses in their skills.
