Teaching and Research

In addition to providing general medical services, the Practice also undertakes the continuing education and training of Health professionals working at the Practice. We also teach medical students and nurses from Addenbrooke’s NHS Trust.

GP Registrars

Comberton and Eversden surgeries is an approved provider of postgraduate general practice speciality training. Dr Wheatley is the GP trainer and Dr Kent the Associate GP trainer.

We usually have a registrar working with us for 6 or 12 months as part of their speciality training. Our current registrar is Dr O’Shea who is with us until July 2019.

Research

The practice is registered to participate in clinical research and is proud to support research trials. We will always provide detailed information and seek your consent if any aspect of your treatment is effected by or included in a research trial or project. This includes use of your data.

We would like to apologize to all our patients for the unacceptably slow service from the dispensary. We are aware that we have been unable to fulfil the turnaround times for repeat prescriptions that we had promised, and we are also aware that many patients have had to queue for long periods of time to collect their medication.

We have been facing unprecedented demand at a time when we are looking to recruit a new dispensary manager and when we have had high levels of staff sick leave.

Please be assured that we are taking active steps to improve the dispensary and we hope to be able to provide a better service in the New Year.
