Bridge of Allan Health Centre has been accredited as a Training Practice, coaching GPs of the future.
Dr Niamh Mullins and Dr Jonathan Turner are the designated GP Trainers but all doctors in the Practice have a significant role to play in training our assigned doctors. The doctors are supervised throughout their journey with us and in addition to the doctors being assessed, the Practice is also inspected periodically.
The doctors join us for an extended period of time:
FY2 (Foundation year) - 4 months
ST1 (Specialist GPs in their 1st year) - 6 months
ST3 (Specialist GPs in their 3rd year) - minimum 12 months
ST3 Dr Emily Arthurs has joined us from February 2017 to July 2018
From 1st August we will have with us:
ST3 Dr Greg Moffat (returning to the Practice) from August 2018 to July 2019
ST1 Dr Aaron Crookshanks from August 2018 to July 2019
FY2 Dr Paula Beaumont from August 2018 to November 2018
.....the Practice benefits from the doctors experience, having worked in alternative medical environments prior to joining us. In addition, we are able to offer additional appointments and choice of doctor during their time with us.
As part of the doctors' training programme they have to video a certain number of consultations for assessment. You will always be asked in advance for consent.
