Training Doctors and Students

Northway Medical Centre is a Training Practice. Your consultation may be with a:

  • Registrar – A qualified Doctor who is specifically training to become a GP
  • FY2 – A qualified Doctor in training at Russells Hall Hospital
  • Final Year Medical Student – Will qualify this year as a doctor.  The patient will also be reviewed by a GP at the same time.

This will mean that it will not always be possible for you to see the Doctor of your choice, particularly as Drs Hampson, Pritchard & Moran are responsible for the training and supervision of the Training Doctors. However, should a review appointment be necessary, this will be arranged by the GP at the time of your consultation.

Continuity of Care

Drs Hampson, Pritchard and Moran will always be aware of the care that you are receiving, as they review all clinical correspondence, test results and prescription requests.  Additionally, your consultations with a training doctor are reviewed by Drs Hampson, Pritchard & Moran as part of the training process.

3rd & 4th Year Medical Students

Northway Medical Centre is a teaching practice for the University of Birmingham Medical School. Dr Pritchard and Dr Moran are the tutors for the third year Medical students who come to the surgery on a Friday, and Dr Moran is the tutor for the 4th Year Medical Students who come to the surgery on a Wednesday.

As part of their training, the students need to learn about long term conditions (e.g. diabetes, COPD, asthma etc) as well as meeting with pregnant ladies and young babies.  We would be so pleased if you could help us. If you are interested in meeting with our medical students, or if you require any further information, please enquire at Reception, or contact the surgery and speak to Amy or Sarah who look forward to hearing from you.  Appointments with our students would always be at your convenience, and your participation would greatly help the students in the course of their studies.
