We are an Oxford Region training practice and regularly have Learning Doctors in the practice.  Occasionally, video recordings of consultations are made for teaching purposes; these are viewed only by doctors. You will always be told when a video is being made and your consent sought. Please tell us if you would rather not take part.

As a training practice, Rectory Meadow is regularly assessed by other doctors from outside the district. They do need to view some medical records. If you are unhappy with this, please let us know and we will ensure that your records are not used for assessment purposes.

Specialist Trainee Doctors 

We usually have one or two Specialist Trainee Doctors (ST Doctors) with us for a year or more's training. ST Doctors are qualified doctors who have undergone substantial training in a hospital and then spend a year in an appointed general practice before settling down in a partnership.

Medical Students

In addition, our Practice is a "community teaching practice" for King's College London School of Medicine.  With the supervision of your GP or nurse, medical students may, with your consent in advance, join your consultation.  This is one way medical students learn to become good doctors and understand patients' views about their care. 

We appreciate your help with all their learning.
