The Doctors

GP Training

Whitstable Medical Practice participates in compulsory advanced training for doctors who wish to become future general practitioners. These qualified doctors come to us for 12 to 18 months and are closely involved in the working of the Practice.

We are also involved in the training of final year medical students from the Guy’s, King’s, St Thomas’s and University College London Schools of Medicine. You will be informed, and asked for your consent, if your doctor has a student with them.
