Training Practice

Cheddar Medical Centre - Training practice Profile

Cheddar Medical Centre is enthusiastically and actively involved in training new GPs. Each year we are joined by a qualified doctor, with at least 4 years of hospital and GP experience, for their final 12 months of training towards the MRCGP exam, which entitles them to progress to independent practice as a GP. Doctors who take up these posts, known as GP Registrars, will already have spent at least 12 days in Cheddar Medical Centre over the previous 2 years to get to know how we do things here and will even have done some surgeries of their own in that time. During their final year of training they act as a full time doctor in the practice, seeing patients in surgery, visiting at home when necessary and learning about the running of a typically busy general practice. All doctors in training are under supervision – our GPs Dr Elwyn Davies and Dr Cassie Thomas are the qualified trainers in the practice.

You may be offered an appointment with a doctor in training, including some surgeries in which their trainer will also be present. Reception staff will always let you know when this is the case. Our GP Registrars over the years have proved themselves keen, committed and skilled and we hope you will support them as much as they will want to support you.
