Highview has a long tradition of training young doctors aiming to specialise in General Practice. Dr Shah and Dr Glekin are accredited trainers and will supervise one or two GP registrars at any one time at the surgery. GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who are doing an additional year post graduate training.
Sometimes as part of their consultation skills training, a registrar may need to video his/her surgery. We will always inform you if a surgery is being videoed and ask your explicit consent prior to the consultation. If you do consent but, following the consultation, wish to withdraw consent please let reception know as you leave.
