Currently doctors attend medical school for 5 years as an undergraduate.
On qualification as a doctor they become Foundation Doctors for 2 years.
They then enter speciality training as either a GP for a further 3 years or hospital training for 5 years.

As a patient you may freely book appointments with our junior doctors. On some occasions you may be asked if you mind having your consultation videoed for training purposes.

They are watched with their GP Trainer and a small number are watched by doctors from outside the practice. No none medical staff view these videos.
