|Dr Peter Griffiths|
GMC No 3074695
MB ChB (1985) Birmingham MRCGP
Dr Griffiths has lived and worked as a GP on the island for the past 4 years. Prior to that he was a GP partner in Birmingham for 19 years. He enjoys the wide variety of General Practice, has a particular interest in Rheumatology and is actively involved in GP training. Outside the practice he enjoys golf, gardening, supporting the Welsh Rugby team and is involved in a local church.
In 2012 we were authorised as a Teaching Practice. We are only the second practice on the Island to achieve this. A teaching practice offers fully qualified doctors, with experience in hospital medicine, the opportunity to learn about the personal, primary and continuing care of patients and families that is General Practice. They will learn about the management of acute, chronic, recurrent and terminal illness in both the surgery setting and in the patient’s home. Their work in the surgery will also enable them to achieve the higher qualification of Member of the Royal College of General Practitioners – after passing the appropriate examinations.
During the placement, the trainee will see and treat patients in exactly the same way as the other doctors, but will always be supervised by a GP trainer. Like all doctors, the trainee, known as a GP Registrar, must meet the standards of care, competence and conduct set out by the General Medical Council. Sometimes a trainee will make video recordings of consultations, after first getting patients' specific consent. If you don't want a consultation videoed, that is perfectly acceptable and you may simply not sign the consent form.
