    Medical Students

    gp_and_bookThe practice has for many years been involved in the education of medical students from the Queen’s University of Belfast.  At periods throughout the year a student will be attached to the practice, and during that time will accompany doctors during surgeries, home visits and clinics.  Patients will always be informed if a student is present and their permission obtained in advance.

    GP Registrars

    Dr Bill has been a post-graduate trainer in general practice since 2007. A GP Registrar is attached to the practice most years.  They are fully qualified doctors, who have spent a number of years in appropriate hospital posts and are in their final year of the vocational training scheme for general practice. This doctor carries out identical duties to those of the partners in the practice. 

    The training registrar is required to video some consultations for teaching and examinations purposes, and would only be seen by the partners or examiners who are doctors themselves.

    If your consultation is to be videoed, you will be informed, and have the opportunity to say no.  Please be assured that if you do say no, there will be no offence taken and it will not affect your medical care.

    Clinical Research

    The practice is involved in carrying out clinical research and drug trials on behalf of drug companies.  These drugs have already been well researched but the end stage of the research is undertaken within a primary care setting.  Patients may be contacted to participate in these trials; the research nurse Gillian Walker or Dr McCaughey will discuss all aspects of the trial with patients.  Consent is purely at the individuals’ discretion.
