We currently have the 5th year medical students with us until April 2016. The medical students will be available for appointments during this time. They are allocated a GP each day and the format of the appointment is a 20 minute consultation with the medical student, followed by a 10 minute consultation with the allocated GP. Eg: Monday 14th September, 3pm appointment with the medical student, followed at 3.20pm with an appointment with Dr Reid. Please utilise these appointments as they are invaluable to the students to gain experience in patient consultations. Thank you.
