Training Practice

Shap Medical Practice is an accredited GP Training Practice.

GP Registrars

We are pleased to announce we are an accredited Training Practice involved in the training of fully qualified doctors who wish to enter General Practice. This means that we train fully-qualified doctors, who have completed their 4 years of training in hospital medicine, to develop their skills in general practice. We believe that achieving and maintaining training practice status will enhance the quality of the medical care that we provide. It will also enable patients to see a wider range of clinicians whilst allowing the surgery to benefit from the fresh ideas and approaches brought by young enthusiastic doctors.

From August 2022 we will have a GP Registrar joining the team and you may be offered an appointment with them at the surgery.

Medical Students

As well as GP Registrars, we also support the training of both medical students and student nurses. Our next rotation of a medical student will be November 2022 and patients may meet medical students in the surgery or accompanying the doctor on their calls. These students are going through a very important part of their medical training and your co-operation is extremely valuable and much appreciated. However, no intrusion on the privacy of the consultation will take place against the wishes of the patient. If you do not wish for the students to be present in your consultation then please let us know.
