Elm House Surgery is an accredited postgraduate training practice and trains fully qualified doctors for General Practice. These doctors are referred to as GP Registrars and work in conjunction with one of the partners. A GP Registrar will usually spend 12 months with us although it may be less depending on their previous experience.
Patients may be offered an appointment with a registrar in the same way as any other doctor within the practice.
Students from Imperial College London and University College London are seconded to the practice to learn about the specialist skills required in General Practice as part of their undergraduate curriculum.
When you attend the surgery for an appointment we may ask you to see a student. If this is the case then be assured that the doctor with whom you made the appointment will also see you. You are under no obligation to see these students and if you prefer not to then please advise the receptionist when booking your appointment.
