Nichola -no gynae problems or HRT. She can see children over the age of 3 months.
Janice – does not do vaginal examinations. She can see children over the age of 2 months.

We currently have 2 GP Registrars: Dr Woodhouse and Dr Saber (both male)
As a training practice we take GP Registrars on a 6 month rotation. They are fully qualified and have already done training in hospitals.
You can expect them to provide a full range of GP services. If they are not certain about what to do they will ask more senior colleagues for advice.
