We are actively looking to secure a new GP but at the moment we have a selection of regular locum Gp's working with us. We believe that continuity of care is important to patients so we are trying to keep the change of staff to a minimum but hope you can bear with us on this matter.
White House Farm Medical Centre is a training practice and we regularly have medical students at the practice. Some of these are on short rotations of 7 weeks (3rd and 4th year students), but we also currently have two 3rd year students coming to the practice once a week for a year.
We also have three registrars at the practice. These are qualified doctors who are doing their GP training and they see patients during this time. They are supported by the practice and Dr Thullimalli is their trainer.
