GP Training

The Longcroft Clinic is an accredited NHS training practice for undergraduate medical students and postgraduate doctors (specialist training GP registrars).

GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have completed hospital training and wish to pursue a career in general practice. They spend up to twelve months at The Longcroft Clinic to improve their consulting skills and widen their experience in primary healthcare. The GP registrars hold daily surgeries like the other doctors at the practice and are mentored by a GP trainer.

Medical students from St George’s Hospital are also taught in The Longcroft Clinic. During their time at the practice, they will observe consultations with the doctor or nurse. This is an essential part of training the next generation of doctors who could be responsible for your future care. Reception staff will always ask if you agree to a medical student observing your consultation. If you would prefer not to have a student present during your consultation, please let us know by completing our Contact the Practice form.
