Training Practice

gp_and_bookGloucester Road Medical Centre (GRMC) is a training practice. This means we have been approved by the Deanery to teach GP Registrars (doctors in their final year of general practice training before becoming independent GPs). They spend up to a year working in the practice. Dr Holdsworth and Dr Honeywill are our current trainers.

We also have F2 (foundation year 2) doctors in the practice from time to time. These are fully registered doctors who are doing their junior doctor hospital training and spending a period in general practice (usually 4 months) as part of this training. Recent F2 doctors at GRMC have been planning careers in dermatology and paediatrics and have found their experience in general practice very useful for their training.

If you are offered an appointment with one of our training doctors, you can be assured that they are supported by one of our regular doctors and are fully qualified to see patients. They are often popular as they are allocated longer appointment times to see patients!

We also teach 4th year medical students and 1st year medical students.

As a practice we believe that teaching and training are important, to bring on the next generation of doctors. It also helps to keep us (and our patients!) on our toes, with new ideas from training and from hospital medicine
