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 enable them 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 Deborah Olawuyi
Flora Brabender RGN
Paula Bateson RGN
Nadia Silver RGN
Lorna McLeod RGN
Linda Ross (Healthcare Assistant)
Carol McConnachie (Healthcare Assistant)
Julie Anderson RGN, RHV,
Veronica Scott RGN, RHV, RM, BSs, PHN, IAIM
Gillian Brown RGN, RHV

A Community Links Practitioner is a generalist social practitioner based in a GP practice serving a socio-economically deprived community, addressing the problems and issues that the individual brings to the consultation, rather than a worker whose domain is limited to a specified range of conditions or illnesses, or one who is based elsewhere within health, social care or other services.
They offer non clinical support to patients, enabling them to set goals and overcome barriers, in order that they can take greater control of their health and well-being. Using ‘good conversations’ a CLW supports patients to identify problems and issues they are experiencing and to talk about what really matters to them. They support patients to achieve their goals by enabling them to identify and access relevant resources or services in their community. A CLW also maps local services, engaging with and developing productive relationships with these services including keeping informed of the status of existing and new services.
