GP Training

We are passionate about education and proud of our educational achievements.  We support a number of training programs including Medical Student Years 2 & 3  programs from UCLAN and Year 4 Medical students from Lancaster University.  All our GPs support the mentoring of the these training programs.

 

Foundation Year Two - Doctors in Training

Thursby provides opportunities for Foundation Year placements for Doctors. Foundation Doctors are fully qualified doctors who rotate between various specialties to increase their experience.  Some of them may choose to go onto do further training to become a GP others may become surgeons or specialist doctors in a hospital setting.  Each Foundation Doctor will be with us for a 4 month placement.  They will be closely supervised and assessed throughout their time with us. They will have longer appointment times. Foundation Year Doctors hold their own surgeries and appointments, although not available to book on-line but can be booked by a receptionist via our telephone booking service.

Our current FY2 GP isLucy Smith

 

Medical Students

The Practice is also a designated teaching practice for medical students. If a student  is  sitting  in  with  a  doctor  at  the  time of  your  appointment,  our  receptionist will inform you. Occasionally patients with specific medical problems may be asked to attend for their medical history to be taken and examined by the medical student. This is of course voluntary, our doctors and students are very grateful for your help. If you wish to decline a consultation with medical students in attendance then please inform reception prior to your appointment.  

 

Video Consultations

Because we are a teaching practice, on occasions you may be asked to allow a video of your consultation to be made. This will not happen without your consent. Examinations will not be recorded. You may ask for the consultation to be deleted if you change your mind. The video will be used for teaching purposes only between doctors will be deleted shortly afterwards. If you decline to be videoed, it  will  make  no  difference  to  your  appointment  or  the  availability  of  the  appointment. Please ask one of our reception team if you require any further information.
