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..
Dr Karim Taleb
Karim is currently a GP trainee in the Practice. He has been working in Kent training in anaesthetics, but he says this wasn't what he wanted to do for the rest of his life, so decided to be a GP and live somewhere beautiful - Orkney was a perfect fit. He has moved here with his wife and son. He says that they have been made to feel very welcome, have had a great time so far and are looking forward to exploring more of the islands.
