The Mendip Country Practice is affiliated to several medical schools and each year helps to educate one or two future doctors. We also provide special training for fully qualified hospital doctors, who wish to specialise in General Practice. A Registrar may train with us for either 6 months or one year.
We are a member of the MRC (Medical Research Council) General Practice Framework – this means we occasionally carry out research with the help of our patients. Obviously permission is granted by the patient first and we may pass anonymised information from your medical records to the co–ordinating centre, but if a participant did not wish this to happen, this will be respected.
If we do ask for your help with MRC work, you are free to refuse without your medical care being affected.
