GP Registrars

We currently have 3 GP Registrars:

  • Dr N Richards (Female)
  • Dr Z Hameed (Male)
  • Dr M Johnson (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.
