Cedar House practice is a training practice. This means that hospital doctors who wish to do further training to become GPs, work sessions with the practice to gain the experience they need to become family doctors.
In a training practice, your medical records may be used for educational purposes, and a team of inspectors may view your records to ensure that they are maintained up to the standard for a training purposes.
In addition, during the training period, video surgeries are conducted for assessment of consultation skills. Occasionally, you may be asked whether you consent to your consultation being recorded. This is entirely voluntary, and you will have an opportunity at the end of the consultation to withdraw consent if you wish.
The practice also trains medical students, and you may be asked whether you consent to a medical student being present during your consultation. Again, this is entirely voluntary, please inform a receptionist if you do not wish to participate in training surgeries.
