Further Information

We aim to provide comprehensive medical care of the highest quality and to offer a personal, friendly service to our patients, in a modern, fully computerized and extensively equipped medical center. Our whole primary health care team are enthusiastic teachers. We have been training since the 1980s and have had four registrars simultaneously since 2009. This allows mutual support and extra tutorial time. Other partners are involved in teaching medical students and have in the past held posts as GP tutor and senior lecturer in GP. Our nurse practitioner is a nurse mentor. We have a very comprehensive library and promote full support in preparation and MRCGP. Western Road takes a professional approach to all business aspects of primary care. We expect your year to be fun, whilst equipping you to enter general practice with confidence.
