Walderslade is a training practice for GPs. Dr Wastling is the trainer, with the support of the whole practice team. This means that we have qualified doctors ("GP Registrars") on 6 month placements in the practice while they improve and learn the specific skills they need to be a really good GP. They are closely supervised and have a number of formal assessments to complete.
You may be offered an appointment with one of the GP Registrars. Sometimes they may ask to video the consultation and sometimes another GP will be sitting in with them.
They are a valued part of our team at Walderslade and you can expect the same standard of care from them as from any of the other GPs.
We feel proud to be able to embrace the learning philosophy that their education provides and feel our patients benefit from their energy and enthusiasm. We welcome any feedback from patients on their performance.
