Doctors in Training

Biddulph Valley Surgery is a training practice. GP Specialty Trainees work with the Practice for four to twelve months. These doctors are hospital trained and have been qualified doctors for a number of years. During the time at the practice they learn to apply their skills within the community.

We hope you will be happy for these Doctors to play a part in your care, but if you have any concerns about this, please inform the Receptionist and we will respect your wishes. They are always supervised by a qualified GP and they will be able to consult him/her whenever the need arises.
