We are an Associated Practice of Leeds University and a GP training practice and you may be offered an appointment with a GP registrar. These doctors are fully qualified and have had experience in several hospital specialties. They are completing their specialist training as a GP. As part of doctor’s ongoing training they may occasionally wish to visually record some of their consultations for later study and assessment. If a doctor is videotaping during a surgery you will be expressly asked your permission and asked to sign a consent form before you see the doctor and you are entirely free to decline such a request. All recordings of consultations are held under strict guidelines and securely wiped after use.
We also teach medical students and sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse with a student present. You will always be asked beforehand if this is acceptable and you may ask for the student to leave if you prefer to have your consultation in private.
