Attached Staff

Medical Trainee

Woodlands Medical Centre does have medical trainees working at the surgery.  Trainees are always supervised by one of the experienced GPs in the practice who is available to review individual patients during these appointments if necessary.  We value the opportunity of helping to develop the doctors of the future.  We also teach Oxford University medical students and they may occasionally sit in during consultations – we always ask your permission before allowing them to see you, so if you would rather see the doctor alone, please feel free to decline. Additionally, doctors occasionally video their consultations for teaching and examination purposes.  You will always be asked for consent before this and we completely understand if you would rather not take part in this.
