This practice was established about 55 years ago and had been a training practice since 1985. It is a practice with innovative ideas and has succeeded in giving education the top priority, both for clinicians as well as the other staff.
The Trainer is also Tutor for this area and is involved with issues of education in the patch.
There is an extensive library that has been recently added to the practice with almost all the essential books recommended by the Deanery.
The branch surgery is being purpose built with audio/visual facilities in all the consulting rooms.
In general we expect the Registrar to benefit from all the above.
