Teaching Involvement

Lakeside Healthcare Stamford is a Training Practice and is involved in the training of fully qualified Doctors who are experienced in hospital medicine and now wish to pursue a career in General Practice.

These Doctors are with us for a period of up to one year, working as part of our Practice team. You may be offered an appointment with them in the course of our normal Surgery appointments system.

As part of their training the doctors need to video some of their consultations. You would always be informed by our Reception Team  if this might happen in an appointment that you have booked and given the opportunity to let us know if you would like to take part in this training or not. No examinations are recorded are recording are only viewed by the doctors for teaching purposes.

The practice also participates in the training of medical students from the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine.  These students are in the earlier stages of their medical training and attend in different years of their study.  You may be offered an appointment with a medical student.  All medical student appointments are completed in conjunction with and under the supervision of a  fully-qualified doctor.

The practice will also shortly participate in the training of nursing students.
