Patient Group Meeting

The next Patient Group meeting will be held at the surgery at 6:30 on Wednesday 6th December 2017. Everyone welcome.

This meeting provides an opportunity for patients to understand and influence the way we deliver services to patients.

Please note: The Patient Group Meeting is not a forum for individuals to raise personal issues. The Comments, Concerns and Complaints procedure should be followed in such instances.

Teaching and Training


In 2004 the practice became accredited as a training practice for new GPs.

Dr Holden and Dr Parr are experienced GP trainers. Dr Lawson has become a GP trainer more recently. And Dr Newton will hopefully be joining them as a trainer herself fairly soon. We have GP registrars attached to the practice on a regular basis. Our registrars are fully qualified doctors who have a great deal of hospital experience. Registrars are attached to the practice for 6 or 12 months and usually become general practitioners after completing their training.

Since August 2006, we have also had a Foundation Grade trainee doctor attached to the practice. They are here to broaden their medical experience 1-2 years after qualifying as doctors, usually from Liverpool University.

We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice.

When booking or attending for an appointment with your GP, you may be invited to consult with the medical students as well. The opportunity to meet patients face to face provides them with vital experience and helps them in the audit project which forms a statutory part of their training. You are under no obligation to participate in a consultation with a medical student and we will always respect your wishes should you elect to decline this invitation.
