The surgery is both a training and a teaching practice approved by the University of Manchester.
In total we usually have 4 doctors in training.
GP registrars (ST3) are attached to our practice for 12 months (whole time). The registrars are doctors who have already spent three or more years in hospital practice before spending a year with us. They usually go on to be independent GPs at the end of this training. They are now termed ST3 doctors.
We also host ST2 doctors spending 6 months in general practice as part of their second year in specialty training. They may not end up as GPs but could become hospital consultants.
