The practice is involved in the training of young doctors (Registrars) in the Harrogate district. These Registrars, preparing to enter general practice, join us for a period of six months to gain experience under supervision. They all have hospital experience before they come to us. All of the partners are tutors attached to the Medical School at Leeds. Senior medical students also regularly spend time in the practice.

They work under the doctors' instructions. The clearer you can explain your problem the better we can help. Any information you give to our team remains confidential. Our receptionists are trained to do a difficult job and they try very hard to do it well. Please help them to help you.
