Training Practice

The Ridgeway Surgery is an approved training practice. This may mean that you see a G.P. Registrar or a Foundation Year doctor.  

GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have had recent specialist experience in the Hospitals. The doctors at this stage of their career have committed to general practice as a career. 

A Foundation Year doctor is a qualified doctor who is in their second year of postgraduate medical education and training.

These doctors are learning about delivering clinical care in general practice. They are undertaking supervised practice. The appointment slots may be longer than usual and they have regular sessions with one of the other doctors later in the day to discuss any uncertainties they may have. 

Videos

On occasions a doctor will be video-recorded while conducting a surgery for teaching purposes. We will seek your agreement to be videoed before the consultation. If you are unhappy about the video then let the doctor know and it will be turned off and the consultation will then proceed as normal. 

You will be alerted to this again by posters in reception and you will also be required to sign a Consent to Video form.  These recordings are not of intimate examinations, and you can request not to take part in these.
