We are pleased to announce that the practice will become a training practice from August 2019. This involves teaching doctors- called “GP registrars,” so that they can become General Practitioners themselves. With the current shortage of General Practitioners in the UK this is very important!
Dr Roisin Cannon will be joining the practice for 2 years from August. She is a fully qualified doctor who will be able to do surgeries, sign prescriptions and carry out house calls. She will initially see fewer patients than the other doctors in the practice and may have to seek assistance from her colleagues but we are sure that she will be warmly welcomed by all.
Assessing video consultations is a very important part of GP training.
Dr Cannon will have frequent surgeries which will be video recorded for training purposes. The consultations will only be looked at by other doctors in the practice and will then be deleted. Physical examinations will never be recorded. Other doctors in the practice will also have their consultations recorded from time to time- once again this is purely for training purposes.
We will always let patients know when they are booking an appointment if it is a video surgery and if you do not wish to take part then you will be given a different appointment.
I am sure you will join us in welcoming Dr Cannon to our Practice Team.
