General Practitioner Trainees
Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our trainees are fully qualified doctors with hospital experience. Trainees are attached to our practice for up to 12 months and usually become general practitioners after completing their training.

As part of the training and examination process, there is a requirement to video a number of consultations. Your written permission will always be sought for this.

Medical Students
We undertake a programme of teaching medical students and express our thanks to all our patients and staff for their co-operation in this process.

A strict protocol is followed and the receptionist will inform a patient that a medical student will be present during consultation and consent will always be sought before you see the doctor.

Patients who are not able to attend the surgery for blood tests can have their blood taken by the Pathology Department at Singleton Hospital, Morriston Hospital or Neath Port Talbot Hospital.

Administrative Staff
