We are now a teaching practice and from time to time students will be with the GP to further their training in General Practice. You will be asked to give permission for the student to sit in during your consultation or when responding to eConsult. Whilst we encourage you to help support the trainees, your wishes will of course be honoured and if you feel this is not suitable please let the receptionist know.
Please note that for an online triage method of information sharing (such as eConsult) there is implied consent but not, as yet, an option for a patient to withdraw consent. If you do not wish the student to review or assist with the response please make sure you document this within your econsult.
