Training Practice

Foundation Year 2 Doctors        

We are proud to be a training practice now. We train Foundation Year 2 (FY2) doctors who are qualified doctors and just need a bit more supervision before they choose their speciality and further training.

They rotate on four monthly cycles. You may be booked in to see the FY 2 Doctor, they will always discuss your case with Drs Edara or Navuluri.

This placement will give them a good exposure to General Practice and will help them to develop as a clinician. We hope this placement will inspire some of these doctors to choose General Practice as a career.

Research Practice

We are now a research ready practice, which means we will have a chance to participate and contribute to clinical studies which in turn helps to develop new treatments and protocols for the future.

From time to time we will have a few clinical trials running, we will let the suitable patients know if they want to opt in. Please be assured that all the studies we participate in are from National Institute for Health Research portfolio and have all the necessary local as well as national approvals.
