Manor House is a teaching practice. We have medical students from Manchester University for short periods.
With the patient’s consent students may sit in on consultations with the GP or nurse to learn about general practice.
Students are also occasionally asked, with the patient's consent, to carry out a consultation alone which is then discussed with the GP, student and patient.
You may be asked to consult with a 5th year medical student before you see your GP. If you agree to see a medical student first, you will be assisting with their training and your cooperation will be appreciated. However the choice is yours and you do not need to have a consultation with a medical student if you prefer not to.
We are a training practice for Foundation Years doctors. FY2 doctors are in their second year post qualification and are required to spend 4 months in General Practice as a part of their post qualification experience.
We also train Specialist Trainee doctors (ST2 or ST3) in their second or final year of specialist GP training
They are qualified doctors and you can consult with them as you would with any of the other doctors in the practice. FY and ST doctors have full access to your medical notes and they are supervised at all surgeries by one of our regular doctors.
We hope that you will help with the doctor training by agreeing to consult with a FY2 or ST doctor if an appointment is offered to you. However you may request to see your usual doctor for a consultation if you prefer.
