Doctors In Training
The Kingsmills Medical Practice is recognised as a training practice. The practice team is committed to the development of future GPs and some of our surgeries are set up to support these doctors in training. They are fully qualified and their placements in the practice will vary from 6 months to a year.
As part of their training these doctors may sometimes wish to record their consultations with you, in honing their communication and examination skills for their exams and ongoing learning through feedback. You will be asked to consent to this before any recordings are made, and you will be able to withdraw consent at the end of the consultation if you change your mind. If you feel uncomfortable about video recordings, please let us know before the appointment. This will not affect your consultation in anyway. This process is for the benefit and development of the doctor and recording will be deleted once the doctor has reflected on their performance.
We are grateful for your co-operation in the important work of teaching future GPs.
We also offer training for Aberdeen University medical students. Students may sit in on doctors’ consultations and also consult with the full supervision of a GP. We will always ask you when making an appointment or attending the surgery if you mind seeing a student. Please tell us at anytime if you would prefer not to do this.
