General Practitioner Registrar and Foundation Year 2 Doctors
We are delighted to be able to offer placements at our practice for GP Registrars and also Foundation Year 2 (F2) Doctors from Warrington Hospital.
Dr Wong is our GP Registrar Trainer and Dr Palmer and Dr Unwin are responsible for the F2 doctors.
To become a training practice the practice and the doctors have to go through a rigorous assessment and application process including training courses and a practice inspection visit and be able to demonstrate the highest clinical standards and teaching methods.
Not all practices have this training status and we are very proud of the fact that Latchford has. The F2 doctors are fully qualified and have been working for at least a year in hospitals and are with us for four months. This means that when you come and see one of the doctors you may see our GP Registrar or F2 doctor. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who work with us for 12 months at the end of their GP training or for 4-6 months during GP training.
The GP registrars and F2 doctors may do video consultations. The video shall be used for assessment purposes as part of their General Practice Training, seeking membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners. The video will be seen only by doctors involved in the assessment of doctors as part of their training for General Practice. The tape will be stored securely and treated as confidentially as any other medical record. The tape will be erased as soon as practicable.
