Chet Valley Medical Practice has been a training Practice for the last 30 years. The current trainers are Dr Duthie and Dr Linda Isherwood. GP Trainees spend either six or twelve months with the Practice, they are fully qualified doctors who have chosen a career in General Practice and are fully qualified to treat patients. As a patient you may be offered an appointment with the GP Trainee, however this is always the patients choice. With written consent from the patient we may ask permission to video the consultation.
On occasions we may ask for your consent to allow your consultation with the GP Trainee to be video-recorded for teaching purposes. Such a recording would normally be seen only by the GP Trainee and one of the GP Partners.
Video recording will only ever be done with your explicit consent. You do have the right to refuse.
We are a designated teaching Practice, which involves medical students from the University of East Anglia. Occasionally we may ask your permission for you to participate in their teaching programme. It is of great benefit for the student to learn from you in this way, but we always respect your decision if you do not feel comfortable with this. Dr Morgan teaches year four students on a Monday, Dr Hannah Harper third year students on a Tuesday, Dr Kingsley Betts year one students on a Thursday and Dr Hofmann teaches second year students on a Friday. Helen Hiseman is the coordinator for the Medical Students.
