Training Practice: Patient Information

Forest Health Group is a training practice and is accredited to train doctors intending to become general practitioners or other specified clinicians. As part of this training process, you may see a doctor in training attached to the practice or you may see this doctor with another of our regular clinicians [a ‘joint surgery’].

Our GP Trainees and our GP trainers will sometimes take a video consultation of patient consultations as part of this training process. You may therefore be requested to agree to such a video recording of your consultation. Your permission will always be requested beforehand and you will be asked to sign a letter of consent. If, after the consultation, you wish to withdraw such consent, this will be possible. There is no obligation for you to agree to such recording.

To remain a training practice, the practice is regularly inspected by the local deanery and this inspection may include a review of patient’s clinical records. Doctors specifically approved for this purpose will carry out these assessments.

If you require any further information about either the practice as a training practice or the video recording specifically, please speak to a member of staff.
