Bishops Close Medical Practicelogo

We have produced this website to provide you with information about the way the Practice is organised and the services that are provided directly by Practice Staff, or by other members of the Primary Health Care Team. Services will, by necessity, change from time to time, please do not hesitate to telephone the Practice to check the current position.

Training Practice

In February 2016 we became a Training Practice and now benefit from the Services of a General Practice Registrar. These are fully qualified doctors and join us for six months to gain experience in family practice. Dr. Paul is the appointed practitioner trainer. Patient medical records are used to aid GP Registrar training in accordance with practice guidelines.

As part of their training, registrars are required to video some consultations for assessment and you may be asked for permission to record your visit. You are under no obligation to do this and can decline without any effect on your care in any way.

From time to time, the Practice accommodates Medical Students in their training.  Students from local universities may, with the patients consent, accompany our clinicians during consultations or home visits.

Named GP

In accordance with NHS Guidance, all patients, including children, have a Named GP as well as an accountable GP. For further information, please contact reception.
