GP Training

Church Street Practice is specially approved for the postgraduate training of doctors in General Practice.The Practice is linked to the Oxford Deanery. More information is available on their website here.

There is a long tradition of training within our practice. Qualified doctors who are training to be General Practitioners spend time at the practice before moving on to another surgery once they are fully qualified GPs. We have two trainers Dr Liz Mackenzie and Dr Matthew Gaw.

Training has changed dramatically in the past few years, and now incorporates more experience within GP practices. You may now be seen by doctors at different stages of their GP training. These doctors used to be called registrars but are now known Specialty Trainees. They spend six or twelve months working here. All of these doctors are fully qualified, and also have supervision from one of the Partners in the practice. On occasions your consultation may be video recorded for teaching purposes. This will not be done without your consent.
