Training Practice

Ashbourne Medical Practice is a proud training practice, accredited by Health Education England – East Midlands. We are accredited for the training of General Practice Specialty Registrars. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have chosen to specialise in general practice.

GP Registrars are valuable additions to our team, and we are confident that they provide our patients with modern, effective and caring treatment.

Upon making an appointment, the reception team will inform you if you are due to see a GP Registrar.

Consultations with GP Registrars are sometimes video recorded for training purposes. The recording will only take place if you give your consent; there is no obligation for you to do so. You may ask for the recording to be deleted if you change your mind during or following the consultation. The video will be reviewed only by the GP Registrar and their supervising GP Trainer, and once viewed will be deleted shortly afterwards.

Our reception team arrange appointments, deal with phone requests and keep the surgeries running smoothly. If you wish to register with the practice they will provide you with information and the necessary forms to do so. Patients register with a practice, rather than an individual GP. However, we prefer you to identify with one of us, and this should be mentioned to the receptionists on contact with the surgery.
