The practice is an approved training practice for the training of General Practice registrars. Dr Waterhouse is the accredited GP trainer and Dr Salvati will also be a trainer from 2019.
GP Registrars are qualified doctors who have worked in hospitals for at least 3 years and now have chosen general practice as their career. Each Registrar comes to Eaglescliffe for 6 or 12 months of their GP training, they are closely supervised and undergo a series of assessments and exams. In order to assess their consulting skills, the registrar has to video some consultations and be observed in some consultations by their trainer. You will be asked permission beforehand and sign a video consent form, the recording is solely used for educational purposes and only watched by the GP registrar and their trainer. Similarly sometimes the trainer will be sitting in the surgery observing.
