In 2004 Dr Chris Ellis became a GP Trainer. This has enabled him to train future GPs and his first registrar started with the practice in August 2004. The registrar will be with the practice for six months and during this time will be seeing patients here at the medical centre. Registrars are trained doctors who have decided to specialise in general practice.
During the training period you may be asked if you would mind your consultation being video-taped. This will enable both the registrar and the trainer to assess their progress and could be used as part of the formal examination process. All video-taped consultations require your signed consent and will be kept confidential.

What To Do In Time Of Bereavement
Death is a fact of life. However, many of us never think about what we need to do until we are faced with the situation. It is at this time you need all the help and support possible to help you through the grieving process. We at the surgery are available to give you advice and guidance. However, there are certain practical steps you might need to know about. These are things that you will have to do.
If Someone Dies At Home
1. Telephone the doctor and they will visit to confirm that death has taken place and also tell you how to obtain the death certificate.
2. Contact a funeral director who will be able to advise you on registration procedures.
If Someone Dies In Hospital
1. Contact a funeral director to let them know that their services will be required.
2. Collect the doctor's death certificate from the hospital.
In All Cases Of Death
1. Make an appointment to take the death certificate to the registrars office for the area in which the death took place. Also, take the deceased medical card, if available, and also details of the birth certificate. The registrar will then issue you with a green form.
2. Take this green form to the funeral director who will take over the responsibility for arranging the funeral and allow you to grieve in peace.
