What is a GP Registrar?
A GP Registrar or GP trainee is a qualified doctor who is training to become a GP through a period of working and training in a practice. They will usually have spent at least two years working in a hospital before you see them in a practice and are closely supervised by a senior GP or trainer.
During their final year the GP Registrar will work 4 days per week at the Surgery. They will see patients independently (with support from their trainer). They start with longer appointments at the beginning of their year (August) gradually reduce their appointment time until they are confident with the standard 10 minute appointment slots.
