Teaching and Research

The Wood Medical Practice is a Training Practice. Each year, we have GP Registrars attached to the practice as part of a 3-4 year training programme. We would be grateful if you could accept them as part of the practice as their experience of general practice is invaluable in preparing them to become the GPs of the future.

We also welcome visiting nurse students to gain an insight into general practice. Your GP will inform you before the consultation if a nursing student or GP Registrar will be in attendance at a consultation. The GP will ask if you are agreeable to them staying during the consultation and you have the right to say No. Practical experience of the consultation is invaluable to them and we hope you can support them in their training.
