The Wilson Practice has been a teaching and training practice for very many years. We have been selected by The University of Southampton Medical School to provide teaching to both third and fifth year medical students and we are affiliated to the Wessex Deanery to provide post graduate medical education to Foundation Year 2 and Registrars in General Practice.
Third Year Medical students are attached to us for a period of time during which they visit the practice on a weekly basis and will usually sit in with one of the Partners in the practice during a surgery session. Final year medical students (Year 5) are attached to the practice for a period of three weeks during which time they will not only sit in with Partners but also see patients themselves under supervised conditions. Your doctor may have a student with him in the surgery; however your permission will always be sought before they remain with you during your consultation. You are entirely at liberty to request that the student is not present during your consultation. We are always grateful for the experience that our patients can give to medical students who are of course tomorrow’s doctors.
The practice is a recognised training practice within the Wessex Deanery and undergoes regular appraisals and visits in order to ensure that we maintain the exceptional high standards required of a training practice. Dr. Mike Hayward and Dr. Andy Fellows are both fully qualified trainers which enables them to look after both Registrars and Foundation Year 2 doctors training in general practice. Foundation Year 2 doctors are with us for just four months, gaining further experience in general practice as part of their general medical post graduate training. Registrars are usually with us for at least one year and are receiving their final training in general practice before becoming fully fledged general practitioners in their own right. Both Foundation Year doctors and Registrars are fully qualified as doctors and will be seeing patients in routine surgeries but are closely supervised by their trainer.
You may be asked if you would agree to have your consultation videoed for consultation, training and examination purposes. These videos are to watch the doctor not the patient! You will always be asked for your express written permission for a video of your consultation to be made and of course it is entirely right for you not to grant this permission if you are in any way uncomfortable about being videoed. Dr Hayward, Dr Fellows and the Registrars are all affiliated to the Winchester Trainers Group and the Foundation Year doctors will usually be Southampton Medical School graduates.
