Teaching and Training - Avenue House Surgery
We are a 'Training Practice' which means we often have doctors placed in surgery who are working under supervision of the GPs.
Sometimes during training video equipment may be used to record the actual consultation. Patient permission should always be given before recording can take place and if you refuse your wishes will be respected.
The Practice is also involved in placements for medical students who are in their third year at medical school. The students will 'shadow' various members of the surgery team and your consent may be asked for them to be present during your consultation. We will respect your privacy and wishes if you prefer the students not to be present.
