Springfield Medical Practice is a training practice. This means that we have qualified doctors who work with us for usually between 4 to 12 months. These doctors are either in their second year after qualifying or are training to be General Practitioners. They are supervised by the GP partners within the Practice. After they have been with us for a few weeks they run their own clinics and typically have longer consultation times with their patients. Although they are seeing patients independently, they have immediate access to a supervising doctor. Not infrequently they will ask the supervising doctor for advice during a consultation, either on the telephone or by asking the supervisor to come into the consultation - this is to be expected and is an important part of how they gain informed and guided experience.
We feel that training the next generation of doctors is critical. Without this valuable work, the future of medical care in this country would be limited. Not only do we need doctors now but we will all need doctors in 10 to 20 years' time. We hope that you feel able to help in this important work. If for some reason, you would prefer not to be seen by one of these doctors, please let reception know when you book your appointment.
Occasionally you will be seen by a locum doctor. We do not often need to use external locums but sometimes, usually due to ill-health of one of the partners, it becomes necessary. Locum doctors are always fully qualified General Practitioners.
