The Yellow Wing is now a training practice.
Dr Fleming and Dr Tennick are both qualified trainers. You are likely to meet our young GPs as they pass through and we hope you will enjoy helping them as they help you. They are all fully qualified doctors who need to develop their experience within General Practice. We have also helped train medical students over the years.
GPs used to train by old fashioned apprenticeship. We still do, but it is now a lengthy and prescriptive process. After completing foundation training, GP trainees start specialist training and rotate through hospital and GP placements, typically over 3 years, to gain sufficient experience and expertise to become independent GPs. Trainees are supervised throughout and have to complete a detailed log of their experiences and skills. They must be observed directly, submit video evidence and complete practical and written exams to succeed. You also have a say – they have to undertake a patient satisfaction questionnaire.

Dr Emily Pringle joined us from February until August 2016. She returned to us from hospital in August and will remain with us for her final one year in training.
Dr Harriet Rushworth was our first trainee from February to August 2015. She returned to us after her interim hospital posts from August 2016 to 2017 and is now a fully accredited GP. We wish her well with her locum position locally!
Dr Jennifer Bowie was with the practice August to February 2016. She is now completing training in another GP practice. We wish her well.
