The Streatham Park Surgery is a training practice which means that we help to train doctors at various stages in their careers who wish to become doctors (medical students) or GPs (GP Registrar).
The GP Registrar will usually be attached to the practice for six to twelve months under the supervision of Dr Ghufoor or Dr Hussain who are the GP trainers.
You have the right not to have a medical student or GP Registrar present during your consultation. However, this is an important part of their training and your co-operation is very much appreciated. Remember, they may well be your GP in the future.
