The Belgravia Surgery is now a teaching practice. This means that we will now be training medical students from Imperial College London at the practice.
As part of their training, they will shadow our GPs and do consultations with patients so that they can learn about general practice and medicine. If you have been booked in to see a medical student please don’t worry. There will always be a qualified GP working with them who will go through your problems in detail and make sure that the right thing is done.
If you are booked in to see a medical student, you should be told about this and you are entitled to request an alternative appointment if you wish or to decline that they be present in your consultation. However, we hope that you will help us to train the future doctors of the NHS and therefore be open-minded about seeing the medical students and allowing them to get the experience that they need.
