Cardinal Medical Practice is a training practice and throughout the year student doctors will be developing their learning at the surgery. We accommodate student doctors at all stages of their training. You may be offered the opportunity of having an appointment with students based at the surgery. These appointments help the students to develop their clinical skills and they are always supported by one of the doctors. If you would rather not have a student present during your consultation, please inform the receptionist.
A GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor. They spend one year in general practice training to become a general practitioner.
