We are a University-linked Practice with the Royal Free Hospital and University College, and have a commitment to the ongoing education of undergraduate Doctors. We therefore have new doctors on a regular basis.
Sometimes you may be given an appointment to see a registrar and your permission sought for the consultation to be recorded on video for teaching purposes. Declining to give your permission will not affect your treatment in any way.
Dr’s Schamroth, Dr Sherman, Dr Ramsell, Dr Till and Dr Tang are certified trainers for GP registrars. Registrars are fully qualified doctors, with extensive hospital experience and they normally spend up to a year in training with us. They further their education and personal experience in family medicine before they start on their own as fully fledged GPs.
Your Doctor may have a medical student in the consulting room with you. You will be asked if you have any objections to this and, if you have, the student will be asked to leave.
From time to time, as part of their exams, our trainee Doctors may need to carry out video recording. If you agree to have your consultation recorded, intimate physical examinations will not be recorded and the camera can be switched off during the consultation if you wish.
