Oakview Medical Practice is a training practice, and all of our doctors participate in the training of new GP’s. The GP’s assigned to our practice for training are GP Registrars, who are fully qualified doctors here to gain extra skills to be able to work as a GP. GP Registrars will see patients on their own or, occasionally, with one of the partners participating in the consultation. You as a patient may also be asked to participate in video training for the GP Registrar. The video session is not concerned with looking at the patient, it is about assessing the GP Registrar's consultation skills and is designed to help the registrar become an effective GP. If you have any questions regarding our GP registrars please ask our reception team.
Current registrars working within the practice are: Dr Jock Barge; Dr James Ng.
