Medical Students qualify as doctors after 5 years, but they then need a further 3 years training to qualify as general practitioners.
Barbourne Health Centre started to train junior doctors in 2015.
Dr Holmes is a qualified "trainer" who has been involved in training young doctors who have a interest in becoming GPs.
You may during your visit to Barbourne experience a consulation in a joint surgery, where the trainee GP observes the trainer in consultation, or the trainer watches the trainee consulting.
These joint consultations are a very valuable learning tool for trainees, and we are grateful to all of our patients for supporting us all with this.
We are currently looking for new members for our PPG – all ages are welcome.
If you are interested in joining, please contact the Medical Secretary at the surgery on 01905 22888 for further information.
