We are a registered Training Practice and offer work placement for health professionals who are undergoing post-graduate training, for example qualified doctors who are training to become general practitioners and nurses who are going to become community specialists. Patients may choose not to be seen by professionals undergoing training and you will always be asked if you have any objections.
On occasions we ask to may make video recordings of patients’ consultations with the doctor in order to give feedback to the trainee; but this will not be done without a patients consent and intimate physical examinations will not be recorded. Any planned videotaping will be explained fully to patients and they will have a full opportunity to give or withdraw their consent. If a patient does not wish to have their consultation recorded this decision will not affect the consultation or future care with the doctor. The camera will not be switched on if a signed consent form is not presented to the doctor.
