Teaching & Research
The practice is a teaching practice with medical students from the Hull York Medical School. We teach students from Year 3 and Year 5 of the medical school.
Students are involved with patients at the practice under the supervision of one of the doctors here. You will always be warned about this in advance and it is your right to decline this involvement.
We very much appreciate your involvement in helping to teach the doctors of the future.
The doctors responsible for the teaching in the practice are:
- Dr Ruth Walker (responsible for Year 3 teaching)
- Dr Mike Jobling
- Dr Vanessa Martin (responsible for Year 5 teaching)
- Dr Gill Kirkman
- Dr Anna Hammond
We constantly undertake audits to ensure that we are meeting quality standards and we also take part in research projects. If we would like you to be directly involved in a research project, you will be fully informed and your consent will be obtained.
Research and teaching are very helpful in ensuring the NHS improves quality of care and ensures new doctors are well qualified. It is however your right not to take part in teaching or research if you would rather not do this. Declining will not affect your care in any way.
