Please do not feel apprehensive if you approached to take part in a study.

Medical Students

The Practice is committed to the training of new doctors. Medical students from the University of Leicester Medical School will often, as part of their training, be based at the Practice. You may be asked for your permission to have a student present during your consultation with the doctor. They may also wish to video the consultation when undergoing an assessment. This will be explained to you when booking the appointment and you have a right to decline. The Practice is very grateful for your assistance whilst training our future doctors.

GP Training Practice

Linden Medical Centre is also a GP Registrar training practice. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who are undertaking additional training to become General Practitioners. They may stay at the Practice for up to 18 months. As with the Medical Students, some consultations will form part of their assessment and will need to be videoed with your permission. If you do not want to take part in this please inform the receptionist again when making the appointment.
