We will, from time to time, have one or more registrars in general practice attached to the team. A registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is undergoing a period of general practice experience. Very occasionally, the registrar will wish to video-tape consultations as part of their educational process. Should this happen when you have an appointment, your consent will be sought and, if you prefer, filming will be suspended.
Riverside Medical Practice supervises medical students. As part of their training, they need to observe consultations, undertake supervised consultations and sometimes video-record their work (for training purposes only). Therefore you may be asked if you would mind a medical student being involved in your consultation. Your doctor will understand if you prefer that this does not happen.
