Medical Students

The practice works closely with the Leeds University School of Medicine and occasionally we have medical students with us on a general practice placement. We may ask your permission for you to be seen by a student but this is not obligatory and you are free to decline. We believe that involvement in teaching keeps our standards high as well as providing future doctors with first hand experience of life in general practice. We are grateful to you for lending your support to our teaching and hope that you will accept the occasional presence of a medical student or video camera during consultations. Your permission would always be sought in these circumstances but please feel free to refuse if you are uncomfortable with this.

All staff are here to help you so please ask if you have any queries or questions.

Confidentiality

Patient information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and is released only in line with the Data Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act and the Caldicott Guidelines (PDF).
