Medical Students

168 Medical Group is a training practice. This means that some of our GPs support, train and supervise students. These students will usually be qualified doctors who are undertaking post graduate study. We have also in 2014 become a nurse training practice. We will advise you at the time of your appointment if this is the case and if you are uncomfortable with this for any reason please do not hesitate to advise our reception team.

Research Studies

The practice also occasionally participates in research studies designed to improve future health care. All research studies are closely governed to ensure that patient confidentiality is protected and maintained and that the studies have passed the proper ethical requirements. If a study involves specific patients, those patients will be asked whether they would like to participate and given information. They have the right to decline involvement. It is entirely voluntary.

Customer Notice

We are having a new phone installed on Friday 5th August. This should not affect your ability to contact the Surgery as the switch over should be seamless. Please bear with us if you experience any issues.

Kind regards,

168 Medical Group
