Maybush Medical Centre is proud to be recognised as having achieved the high standards required for the training of young qualified doctors. Being a Training Practice is a mark of quality and Practices have to go through a rigorous selection process before they can start receiving GP Registrars.
GP Registrars are experienced doctors who have decided on a career in General Practice. Before they come to the Practice they have worked for several years as hospital doctors and are learning to adapt their medical skills and knowledge to the General Practice environment. These trainees are going through a very important part of their medical training and your co-operation is extremely valuable and much appreciated.
Doctors you may meet in the practice include Specialty Trainees (ST) in years 1-3 of their training. These are the doctors who used to be known as Registrars. They spend six or twelve months working here at the Practice. We also have Foundation grade (F1 or F2) doctors who may or may not go on to a career in General practice. They work in the Practice for four month periods.
As the above trainees as part of their training undergo regular supervision and assessments. Some of these assessments are made by the review of recorded telephone and video consultations by their trainers. We are very grateful to patients who allow their telephone or video consultations to be recorded as these are a very important part of training assessments. Recordings are ONLY of you and the doctor talking together. Intimate examination will NOT be done in front of the camera. All recordings are carried out according to guidelines issued by the General Medical Council (GMC). The recording, processing and storage of the consultation will comply with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The video will be seen only by doctors involved in the assessment of doctors as part of their training for General Practice. The recording will be stored securely and treated as confidentially as any other medical record. The recording will be erased as soon as practicable and in any event within 26 weeks. You will be asked for your consent on the day of the consultation. You do not have to agree to your consultation with the doctor being recorded and if you say no, this is not a problem, and will not affect your consultation in any way.
If you give permission to the recording, you may change your mind later. You may ask for the recording to be stopped and deleted at any time. At the end of your consultation you will be routinely asked again if you still consent to the recording to be used for training purposes. If, at a later time, you would prefer that the recording is not used, please contact the practice and we will ensure that your consultation recording is erased.
