You may meet medical students from Newcastle University in the surgery or during home visits. We are a teaching practice and the students engaging is a very important part of their medical training.
Patient's co-operation is extremely valuable and much appreciated. No intrusion or privacy of the medical consultation will take place against the wishes of the patient.
You will be informed on arrival if a student is present.
Please remember students are our future GP's so it is very important they are included in all consultations so they get the very best experience possible.
