We are accredited as a Training Practice and a doctor (General Practice Registrar) may join the Practice for further general practice training for a period of up to one year. The receptionists will inform you if this is the doctor you will be seeing. As part of training we sometimes videotape consultations. This only happens with patient’s written consent.
To ensure we continue to meet the high standards required of training practices, we are assessed regularly by doctors from the Grampian GP Training and Education Committee. This involves inspection of some medical records. Confidentiality is guaranteed in this as in all aspects of Practice work.
Aneta is currently a GP trainee in the Practice. She graduated from Medical University in Lublin, Poland in 2012 and has since been a junior doctor in the UK. During a placement in Balfour Hospital she very much enjoyed her time in Orkney and decided to do her GP training here.
