Further Information

We are a young and dynamic paperless practice based in Barking. Barking has one of the highest rates of chronic illnesses in London if not England.

The most recent visit by the London Deanery described us to have a very supportive learning environment which was further enhanced by an evidently strong team spirit.

The practice patient population is very diverse. The learner will have the opportunity to enhance their current skills while building new ones to meet the challenges faced in general practice.

There will be exciting opportunities to participate with CCG activities via clinical champion and the practice manager who is not only the Practice Management lead for Barking and Dagenham but is also involved in with the Primary Care Improvement group.

The practice’s involvement with the CCG in both clinical and managerial aspects, along with a supportive team will give a true insight to general practice.
