Meet the Team
Caddington Surgery is an accredited Training Practice. This means that we have met the high standards of clinical care set out by the East of England Deanery to teach qualified doctors in their foundation and specialist years. You may be asked to see one of them and your agreement ensures that our future doctors get the necessary experience and are well trained. All learners are closely supervised by one of our permanent GPs.
The doctors in training are fully qualified doctors and have a great deal of medical experience. They are attached to the practice for 4 to 12 months and many become general practitioners after completing their training. As part of their final training they are encouraged to seek advice when required from the practice doctors. The GP Registrars are required to produce video recordings of some of their consultations as part of their training. You will be asked for your consent prior to any such consultation and the consultation is strictly confidential between the learner and their trainer.
