GP Registrars

What is a GP Registrar?

A GP Registrar is a qualified doctor who has chosen to undertake speciality training in general practice. It takes a minimum of 5 years to qualify as a GP and involves working both in hospital and in general practice posts. Whilst in general practice registrars are supervised by an experienced GP trainer.

What does this mean for my consultation?

Usually nothing. GP registrars undertake a “debrief” after their clinic where they discuss all cases with an experienced GP. Occasionally a registrar may contact you after the surgery when they have discussed your case further. Please ensure your contact details with the surgery are up to date.

Sometimes GP Registrars will video their consultations or have another GP sitting with them for training purposes. You will be notified prior to your consultation if this is the case.
