The practice regularly undertakes teaching and training of health care professionals and students. This is an important area of our work and we are grateful for your help in this contribution to the future NHS. All those involved will always protect patient confidentiality. You will always be informed when teaching will be taking place and can choose not to be involved.
In 2011, Springmead became a GP Teaching Practice and have welcomed two GP Registrars to the practice so far. We are looking to expand our support for GP Registrars and hope to welcome two more GP Registrars in August 2013.
We also welcome medical students from Imperial College London and the University of Bristol for 2 week placements which gives them experience of general practice.
