We are a teaching practice and have qualified doctors who are training to become family doctors, as well as medical students from Leicester/Warwick University. Occasionally a medical student or additional doctor may be present when you consult your doctor; you will be informed by a receptionist if this happens. However, if you prefer to see your doctor alone this can easily be arranged, just let the receptionist know when you arrive at the surgery.
Occasionally we use video recording and observation of consultations. Video recording and analysis has been shown to be the most powerful method of improving general practice. We hope that you will feel able to help us by allowing your consultation to be recorded.
You will always be informed and your consent will be requested if a recorder is to be used in any consultation. If you would prefer not to take part in this venture, please feel free to say so.
In addition to clinical use, medical records may occasionally be used for medical education.
