The surgery is a recognised training practice and is involved with teaching medical students linked to Birmingham University.
Therefore on occasions students may be present or involved during some of the consultations. This will only occur if the patient has consented for the students to be present, and all consultation details will remain in confidence.
Should you wish for students not to be present during your consultation, then this will not affect your care or consultation with the doctor in any way.
In addition to attending consultations, the students also sometimes need to talk to patients with certain illnesses to aid them in their training. Should you be interested in helping them, then please let reception know.
