We have a long established record of both graduate and post graduate teaching at Loughton Health Centre, having been involved in the undergraduate and post graduate teaching process for over 10 years. We are involved in the undergraduate teaching of medical students from several London medical schools including Barts and Royal London and UCL.
On occasions there may be doctors or other professionals in training who will be "sitting in" on consultations. You will be advised if this is the case and if you object to such a person being present, please do not hesitate to advise the doctor or receptionist.
As a training practice we accommodate a GP registrar who is a fully qualified doctor under going a one year training period, prior to entering general practice. He/She is under full supervision of the trainer in the practice. For training purposes some consultations need to be recorded with the prior permission of the patients, although there is no obligation. The tapes are kept completely confidential between the GP Registrar and the Partners of the practice.
