RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS


Over at Church Street Medical Centre we have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 


 


Please see the following link:

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Eastwood Primary Care Centre is a GP Training Practice

Trainees and Medical Students


As a training practice we are involved in the teaching and training of doctors at different stages of their careers. These are GP Registrars. They are qualified doctors who are engaged in their Postgraduate Training Programme with us at Eastwood Primary Care Centre.


When seeing one of these doctors, you may be asked for your consent to video the consultation. This is part of the doctors’ training and is only ever used for teaching and training purposes.


We are also involved in Medical Student teaching. As part of their training, they are required to see patients. If you agree to see a Medical Student, they are supervised by a GP from the practice who will oversee your treatment.
