Sunniside surgery is a teaching practice but sadly due to the COVID pandemic our students have not been able to be with us the rest of the academic year. We are expecting them back in September which is very positive news since we need to ensure our Doctors of the future are well trained . From September it is very likely that there will be a student present ( with your consent ) during a phone/video or face to face consultation .Your consent will always be sought and please make reception or the GP aware if you do not wish the student to be present.We will also be inviting patients to come down as we have done previously to speak to the students or to be examined by them. Whilst there may be some initial anxiety surrounding this, please be aware the students will be wearing scrubs and full PPE and will also be following all government guidance. There will be more updates to follow as we receive them from the medical school.
Please contact Dr Lewis-Barned if you have any initial questions or concerns on 0191 4883200
