We are delighted to announce that from Wednesday 3rd August 2016 we will be a Training Practice. As a Training Practice we will have Specialist GP Trainee's working within the Practice. As part of their ongoing education there may be occasions when they are required to video consultations for training purposes. Patients will be informed in advance of this occurring and if they do not wish to take part their wishes will be respected.
Our current Trainee's are Dr Poppy Morgan and Dr Devina Brown who will be with us until August 2020. They will both see patients the same way as the other GP's. We all wish them well in their final year as a trainee and are delighted to welcome them to join our team at Garscadden Burn Medical Practice.
