We use a number of highly qualified locums to support the practice to cover for annual leave and training absences.
We are a GP training practice who hosts a registrar for a period of normally six months at a time. Registrars are fully qualified and registered doctors who are undertaking further training to become GPs. They hold surgeries at the practice and have supervision and support from our GPs.
