“During my GP Training, I found that AT Medics provided an organised, nurturing environment and I therefore applied to continue as an independent practitioner after my registrar year. I’ve been supported and developed to take on a GP Lead role in my practice. I have also had the opportunity to develop and utilise my computer programming skills, my expertise have been utilised to develop web-tools and to be part of SATIRE.
As a GP I have been fascinated by the dynamics of the consultation and the therapeutic relationship. My skill in this area has been greatly expanded by being encouraged to develop as a trainer for the practice. Not leaving behind my clinical knowledge AT Medics have supported learning though organised consultant virtual clinics and a network of sharing best practice. The team culture here encourages feedback and reflection – this is so essential for the therapeutic relationship I have with my patients.

“I joined AT Medics in August 2007 after finishing my GP registrar year in North East London. It has been amazing working in such a vibrant dynamic atmosphere.
I have found it challenging but have definitely enjoyed myself. The support from the other GPs has been excellent and I have learnt so much about aspects of general practice that I was not exposed to during my registrar year. I have been able to get excellent training in both clinical and non-clinical aspects. As a result I am now able to provide advanced contraceptive and substance misuse services in additional to core general practice while taking on more management responsibilities.
I am now also a teacher in primary care and supervise F2 doctors.”
