Medical education

We teach medical students from Newcastle University at Heaton Road Surgery. We have third year students at the practice for one day a week during term time and other students at other times.

Sometimes you may be asked to see the doctor or nurse with a student present. You will be asked beforehand if this is acceptable and you can ask the student to withdraw if you prefer to have your consultation in private.
