GPs in training

Our practice is approved to train fully qualified doctors who wish to specialise in general practice.  Our GP registrar will have had 2-4 years experience as a qualified hospital doctor working in various specialities.  They consult patients on their own, under the mentorship of our trainer, Dr Tranter.  Occasionally we ask permission to video a consultation. You will always be asked in advance and are given the option not to take part, and this will not affect your care in any way.  No recording will be taken without your consent and the camera will be switched off on request. These videos are used only for educational purposes with the doctor doing the consultation and are destroyed after use. 

Dr Iain Carr is currently the GP registrar at the practice.

Locum GPs

All our locums are fully qualified GPs on the Oxfordshire CCG Performer's List. They are employed from time to time to cover holidays, sickness and other absences.
