We may have medical students in the Practice from time to time. The students will always be supervised and will not be allowed to diagnose or treat patients on their own although they may conduct the initial part of the consultation alone.
WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE INVOLVED
We may ask for your participation in some of the learning activities we organise for our students. This may take several forms. For example:
- A patient may be asked to come to the surgery to discuss with the student last year’s heart attack and how this may have changed his/her life.
- A patient may see the nurse for a tetanus booster and be asked if they mind if a student watches how the injection is given and how the nurse records the procedure on the computer.
