We normally have a GP registrar in the Practice.
Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are gaining more experience, under supervision in order to obtain accreditation as independent GP’s. In order to gain as much different experience as possible, they usually only remain at a Practice for six months at a time.
From time to time they may request your permission to video their consultation with you. This may be for training purposes or to prove to the accrediting body that they are ready to become GPs. You have the right to refuse permission at any time – it will not affect your care in any way. However, this is a valuable training tool (frequently used by the regular doctors for continuing professional development.) The videos remain strictly confidential and are only seen by GPs within the practice or by examiners; they are destroyed after use.
