Medical Education

GP Training


Chapeltown Family Surgery is accredited as a GP Training Practice. Being a Training Practice is a mark of quality and practices have to go through a rigorous selection process before they can receive GP Registrars

GP Registrars are experienced doctors who have decided on a career in General Practice. Before they come to the practice they have worked for several years as hospital doctors and are learning to adapt their medical skills and knowledge to the General Practice environment. 

As part of their training to become general practitioners they undergo regular supervision and assessments. Some of these assessments are made by the review of recorded telephone and video consultations by their trainers

We are very grateful to patients who allow their telephone or video consultations to be recorded as these are a very important part of training assessments. 

You will be asked for your consent on the day of the consultation. You do not have to agree to your consultation with the doctor being recorded and if you say no, this is not a problem, and will not affect your consultation in any way. 

Please see our policy on recording consulations here

Information about recorded consultations and their security can be found here:

Medical Students

We work in partnership with the University of Leeds to provide education for undergraduate medical students. You may have students sitting in with you when you see our doctors and nurses. You may be asked questions and be examined by a student, but one of our health care staff will be supervising and will ensure you receive the care you need by a qualified professional.

You will be asked for your permission for this, and you are entitled to say no. This will not affect your consultation.
