General Practitioner Registrars/Trainees
The practice is a ‘training practice’ for doctors who have decided to specialise in General Practice. GP registrars are trainees fully qualified with hospital experience; they spend six months or a year with us, with a view to pursuing a career in General Practice. They provide a similar standard of care to the partners. Dr Harkins is the principal trainer and all of the partners are involved in training.
Dr McPherson tutors for Glasgow University Medical School. Medical students from the University and overseas are occasionally present during consultations; if so, you will be informed in advance at reception; if you have any objections, the students.
Video Recording For Training Purposes
On occasion you may be asked if you will allow your consultation with the GP trainee or one of the partners to be video-recorded for teaching purposes. Such a recording would normally be seen only by the trainee and one of the GP partners. Occasionally we may also seek your permission for the trainee to submit the recording for external assessment of their competence. Video recording will only ever be done with your explicit consent, and you may request that the recording be deleted afterwards if you do not wish it to be viewed in the way described.
