Coltishall Medical Practice became a Training Practice in 2016. This means that from time to time we have a GP Registrar doctor working in the Practice. They work under the supervision of the Partners and Dr Rajesh Selvam is their GP Trainer.
GP Registrars are qualified doctors who are undertaking specialist training to become a fully qualified General Practioner. This training lasts for three years and they will be at the Practice usually for six months or sometimes up to a year.
Occasionally, as part of their training, the GP Registrar may ask to video record your consultation. The recording is confidential and would only be used for teaching purposes. There is no obligation to agree to the recording. If you do agree, you will always be asked at the beginning and end of the consultation whether you are happy for the recording to be used.
The GP registrar currently working at the Practice is Dr Olumide Ayodele.
This Practice collaborates with the School of Medicine at the University of East Anglia for the MB/BS programme to train undergraduate medical students to become Doctors. This is a 5 year integrated course and clinical placements occur from the first year onwards. Dr. Mansfield leads 10 first year medical students with their studies on a Thursday at Coltishall Surgery. This involves both theoretical tuition and practical experience with patients. You may be asked if you would agree to having medical students present in your consultation. This is of course voluntary and a refusal will in no way affect your usual medical care.
This training occurs from September to May each academic year for 17 weeks of their training.
