Other Doctors

Some doctors will be with us on a temporary basis. GP Registrars (previously known as trainees) are fully qualified doctors who come to us to complete their specialist General Practice training. They stay with us for 6 months.

We occasionally have a Career Start doctor working with us. These fully qualified doctors have already completed their specialist GP training and they take placements within certain practices in order to further their skills before seeking a permanent position.
