Monksaton Medical Centre is a training practice, which means that junior doctors are taught how to improve their skills here. The junior doctors are fully qualified and have already completed training in hospitals. They would always ask a colleague if they were unsure what to do, just like any of our other GPs. We are also involved in the training of medical students from Newcastle University, who are supervised by one of our salaried GPs.
There may be occasions when the junior doctors will be sitting in on a GP or nurse appointment, and our reception team will inform you of this when booking your appointment.
