Training and Research

Medical & Nursing Students

The Practice is actively involved in the training of medical and nursing students who will become the Doctors and Nurses of the future.  These students are bound by the same code of confidentiality as Doctors and Nurses.  We hope that you will co-operate with us and help the students to learn about general practice.  You will be informed of their presence in advance, and if you do not want them to be present at a consultation, your wishes will be respected.  This will not affect your treatment in any way.

Research

The Doctors in the Practice are keen to embrace research as an integral part of the development of medical care.  From time to time we participate in ethically approved research projects and you may be invited to participate. 

The Doctors also regularly undertake audit to improve services to patients and occasionally we may ask you to fill out questionnaires.  Again, if you do not wish to participate in such research simply let us know.

This Practice contributes to the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD)CPRD is a Government organisation that provides anonymised patient data for research to improve patient and public health.  You cannot be identified from the information sent to CPRD.  For more information visit:- www.cprd.com/public
