Teaching and Training

St Anthony’s is a training practice. This means that we have doctors working with us for six months at a time who are fully qualified doctors doing special training to become GPs. At some times in the year we also have medical students (who are training to become doctors) attached to us for shorter periods. You will always be asked if you are happy for a student to see you, and you are always free to say no.
