Training Practice

Greendale PCC is committed to training new GP’s and also Junior Doctors.  We recognise the importance that training of future GP’s bring and there is an enthusiastic commitment from the whole of the practice team and attached staff to ensure this role continues


General Practice Specialty Training

Doctors will spend five years completing their medical degree, they then spend a further two years as a foundation/junior doctor in a range of specialities including working in a GP surgery for typically 4 months in their second year.  If they then wish to become a GP, a further three years training lies ahead of them. Changes in GP training mean that the practice now supervises GP trainees over the 3 years of their training. GP Registrars spend 4 months of their first year in practice and the whole of their third year.

We have three GP trainers at this practice Drs Martin, Layzell & Taplin

Registrars are provided with their own dedicated consulting room which is fully equipped with medical and computing equipment.  All Registrars are fully debriefed after every surgery by one of the trainers.

Foundation Year 2 Students

The practice has elected to become involved with teaching of doctors in Foundation Year 2. These doctors who have spent one year in hospital practice and are fully registered with the General Medical Council, would be attached to ourselves for a 4 month period and supervised by Dr Ross Martin. 

We have three GP Trainers at this practice Drs Layzell, Steiner & Metson-Scott
