"Attending an appointment with a medical student present."

About: GP Clinic - Southport

(as a service user),

Yesterday I attended a scheduled appointment with Dr Belinda. On arriving I was asked at reception if I agreed to the medical student being present. I willingly agreed and signed the consent form. During the appointment I was so impressed by the way Dr Belinda included the medical student asking his opinion, supervising him checking me out prior to her and allowing him to do the blood work. Dr Belinda is an exceptional GP, trainer and mentor. I believe her medical student has greatly benefited from working with her and will take what he has learned to become a good doctor. Thank you Dr Belinda for your excellent knowledge and kindness and being willing to take the time to pass that on.

Dear Patient Impressed,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with your positive experience with our GP Dr Belinda. Star Health is committed to supporting all students with the opportunity to learn from our highly skilled staff and we always hope that they will become our future workforce members at a later date.

Thank you also for agreeing for the student to be present at your consultation as this enables the learning through observation which allows the student to consolidate the theory learnt at university,

Kind Regards,

Damian Ferrie
