Training Practice

Appletree is proud to be an accredited Training Practice for doctors training to become GPs. The Practice is accredited by the Deanery at the University of Nottingham Medical School.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who already have much experience of hospital medicines but who have decided to specialise in General Practice. They work full-time in the Practice for a period of 4 or 12 months dependent upon the stage of training they are at.

They are supervised by Appletree GP Trainers and provide the same standard of care as the GPs. We are pleased to have them with us as valuable additions to our team.

Consultations are sometimes videoed for training purposes. The recording will only take place if you agree to this; there is no obligation for you to do so. You will be notified beforehand if this is the case and will be asked to sign a consent form.

We also host final year medical students and student nurses. You may occasionally be asked whether you are willing to see your doctor in the presence of a student.

Occasionally patients may be invited to discuss their symptoms with the medical student alone, prior to further consultation and treatment with the doctor. Again, you are free to decline.

A notice will be displayed at Reception when medical students are present.
