We are committed to providing our trainees with a really enjoyable year,during which they will become fully involved in all aspects of our GeneralPractice and supported as they progress through their GP training.
As alarge practice of 27,500 patients, we have the advantage of offering a wide range of experience and have GPs specialising in ophthalmology,dermatology, family planning, paediatrics, obesity, diabetes, asthma,primary care research and COPD. We also have a GPs involved in CCG and LMC work.
We consult from a purpose built surgery in the middle of Marlow, where our learners are based. We have branch surgeries in Lane End, Hambleden and Hurley, offering the trainee an opportunity to experience a variety of primary care settings during the course of their time with us.
We are fully computerised and paperless. Our clinical system is EMISWEB and we use DOCMAN to facilitate easy access to protocols, updates and guidelines as well as for educational conversations in house. We also have a shared drive with helpful training support documents and records of our
educational meetings and presentations.
We also have a room dedicated to training, with a library, journals and an overhead projector at the Doctors House and now also have an additional training room at Lane End Surgery.
As a practice we work closely with everyone in our primary healthcare team. The health visitors and district nurses are next door in the cottage hospital, which also has x-ray and physiotherapy, occasional consultant surgeries, and 17 inpatient beds.
We have an excellent nursing team, offering all the usual services, as well as diabetic, asthma, COPD and travel clinics. We also have minor illness nurses.
We have weekly educational meetings (including significant events and audit) and monthly practice meetings, all of which the Registrar is invited to attend. There is also the opportunity for lots of informal teaching with so many doctors around.
Trainees are fully supported in every surgery. There is an initial induction to meet all members of staff and sit in with colleagues in surgeries. A half day per week is fully protected for in-house teaching for each trainee and the curriculum is very much tailored to the needs of the individual.
The whole practice enjoys and contributes to training and we have a great team of five trainers in house with lots of expertise and enthusiasm to support you with your training: Drs Lockie, Macdonald and Byfleet are attached to the Wycombe scheme and Drs Kuetter and Alberts to the Windsor
VTS scheme offering trainees the oportunity to work alongside trainees from another scheme. Drs Kuetter and Byfleet do most of their clinical work at the branch site Lane End Surgery. Drs Lockie, Macdonald and Alberts do most of their clinical work at the Doctors House in Marlow.
Trainees have the opportunity to work at both sites but will do most of their work at the site where their trainer is based.
We are proud of the clinical care we offer our patients, and value the opportunity to teach this to others.
