Teaching practice

Ashville Surgery is committed to equipping doctors in training with the skills and knowledge they will require to provide excellent care for their patients. Training doctors at Ashville Surgery also ensures that we have a culture of education within activities and meetings at the surgery to ensure that we too keep up-to-date and are always learning! Our trainees are supervised and supported and it is very helpful when people are willing to see the doctors in training.

Specialty trainees (GPST1/GPST2/GPST3 Doctors)

These are qualified doctors who have had some years of hospital experience and are choosing a career as a GP. They need to spend time in general practice in their final years as part of their training to become a GP. We regularly invite GPST3 doctors to join the practice and they join us for a year. GPST3 doctors have in the past been called GP Registrars. GPST1 or GPST2 doctors are in their first or second years of specialist GP training and are with us for six months before moving to a different practice for their GPST3 year.

Foundation trainees (FY2 Doctors)

These are doctors who have been working for about a year since qualifying but who have not yet started training in a particular specialty. We occasionally invite FY2 doctors to join us at the practice to experience working under supervision as a GP for periods of four months.

Medical students

We regularly have medical students at Ashville Surgery. Sometimes they will be sitting in with us. Medical students also see patients on their own but when the student has done their consultation an experienced GP will come in to review the consultation and agree a plan with the patient.

Video recording

Training may involve video recording of consultations but only with your full consent. This is always confidential and only used for specific educational needs of that trainee and are deleted once viewed. You are given the option to change your mind about giving consent at the end of the consultation.
