We are a teaching practice, approved by the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Deanery. We have fully qualified doctors working under supervision to prepare them for a career in general practice. The doctors, may be here for a year or more, or they may be here for a four-month period and known as a GP registrar or a FY2 (Foundation Year 2) doctor.
Dr Rogers is a trainer for ST2/ST3 registrars and FY2 doctors.
Dr Sidhu is a trainer for ST2/ST3 registrars, FY2 doctors and medical students.
As part of their training these doctors need to keep a video diary of some consultations so that they can go through them with their tutors. Participation is optional and patients will always be asked for consent. This is a very valuable tool for new doctors wanting to improve their consulting techniques. For those patients who have consented previously we would thank you for your help towards improving the next generation of doctors.
The practice also hosts senior medical students from Imperial College, London.

PRACTICE MANAGER/ASSISTANT PRACTICE MANAGER
Mrs Caroline Self, our practice manager, deals with all the financial and staffing aspects of the practice along with current legislation and government directives. The Practice also employs an Assistant Practice Manager, Kirsty Pearce who will help you with any enquiries regarding non-medical aspects of your health or treatment. Kirsty is currently on maternity leave, therefore should you need additional help please ask to speak to Caroline Self.
ADMINISTRATIVE & RECEPTION STAFF
Administrative staff and Secretaries will deal with your enquiries and requests as efficiently as possible whilst respecting your confidentiality. Our reception staff are happy to make/cancel appointments, take requests for home visits and give out test results. When giving test results, they will only be able to read the comment made by the doctor. They are unable to give out specific details and we would ask you to respect this as they are not medically trained.
These members of staff are not directly employed by us but nevertheless form an important part of the team that provides medical services.
