GP registrars are fully qualified doctors working within the practice under the supervision of one of the GP trainers during the final year of a three-year postgraduate GP training course leading to the MRCGP qualification. During this time as part of their assessment they are required to video a number of consultations and the co-operation of patients with this is much appreciated. If you would prefer not to have the consultation recorded please inform the doctor or the receptionist.
GP registrars change annually, or may be on an accelerated six-month placement.
Medical students from St George's and King's College Hospitals occasionally sit in with the GPs or may take a medical history from patients before they are seen by the doctor. This is part of their undergraduate training but if you would prefer not to have a student present please tell the doctor or receptionist.
Our practice manager leads a team of 14, principally part-time, staff comprising receptionists and those looking after clerical and secretarial tasks.
The Practice Nurses
There is a team of part-time practice nurses, Sisters Jane Tibble, Marie O'Sullivan, Janey Carpenter and Sarah England. In addition to all the usual nursing skills they have all undertaken further specialised training in a number of fields and play a key role in the management and treatment of the following:
||Childhood and Adult Vaccinations
||Foreign Travel Advice and Vaccinations
|Coronary Heart Disease
||Leg Ulcers and Wounds (excluding suturing)
|COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
||Diet, Weight Control and Exercise
|Cerebrovascular Disease (Strokes and TIAs)
|Peripheral Vascular Disease
The practice nurses also carry out new patient, well person and over 75 health checks. Because of the different specialities of individual nurses and length of relevant appointment time required and to avoid a wasted visit, it is important when making an appointment with one of the nurses to state the reason for the appointment.
