Training and Teaching

You may be aware that most of the GPs at Danes Camp & Rillwood Medical Practice Partnership have significant experience as GP trainers providing education and clinical supervision for Medical Students and GP Registrars at Danes Camp Medical Centre.

In engaging the same GP trainers it is anticipated that Rillwood Medical Centre will also become a training practice for Medical Students and Registrars from as early as the end of April 2021.

Our qualified GP trainers will be actively involved in mentoring and supervising each clinical consultation. You will be informed if a student or registrar will be taking a role in your consultation (telephone or face-to-face) and your consent will be sought prior to them consulting with you. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and professional conduct as all of our regularly employed clinicians.

Eligible Patients:

You automatically qualify for the flu jab the flu jab if you’re 65 years of age or over, or if you have any of the following problems (however old you are):

Your GP may advise you to have a flu jab if you have serious liver disease, multiple sclerosis (MS) or some other diseases of the nervous system.

If you're pregnant, you should have the flu jab, regardless of the stage of pregnancy you've reached. Pregnant women are more prone to complications from flu that can cause serious illness for both mother and baby.

Children with a long-term health condition should also have a flu vaccination because their illness could get worse if they catch flu. This includes any child over the age of six months of age with a long-term health problem such as a serious respiratory or neurological condition. 

The flu vaccine for children is a nasal spray and is available each year on the NHS for two and three year olds.

If you’re the carer of an elderly or disabled person, make sure they’ve had their flu jab. As a carer, you could be eligible for a flu jab too. Ask your GP for advice, or read our information about Flu jabs for carers.
