The surgery is accredited as a training practice for doctors. In order to be approved, it must meet quality standards and we hope this is reflected in the care our patients receive. For training purposes, you may be asked to allow a medical student or GP Registrar to be involved in your consultation or for your consultation to be video recorded. We hope that you will support the training of our future doctors but, of course you are free to refuse.
The practice is actively involved in a number of research projects conducted by Dundee University, Ninewells Hospital and occasionally other institutions such as the Medical Research Council (MRC). We vet these projects very carefully to ensure they are safe and worthwhile studies. All have been passed by the Tayside Committee on Medical Ethics.
It is your choice whether to join or decline any study. Your decision will not influence the care you receive from us in any way.
