MRCGP, DRCOG DFFP
Dr Judith Somers Heslam is a highly experienced family doctor with expertise in all areas of family medicine. Her particular interests include women's and children's health.
From 1996 it has been a requirement that all doctors newly entering, and some doctors returning to General Practice, be vocationally trained. Patients, the practice team, GP Registrars and House Officers all benefit from this process. The Old Exchange GP Surgery is registered as a Teaching Practice and as such is committed to and is responsible for helping GP Registrars, Medical Students, Nurses and other Health Workers with their training and development.
As part of the Old Exchange's commitment to teaching, the Practice must achieve and maintain certain levels of standards that are subject to regular external examination and inspection. These examinations and inspections are carried out by doctors who specialise in medical education, thus maintaining maximum patient confidentiality. The practice was formally approved in July 2014. Dr Judith Somers Heslam takes responsibility for the training.
As a patient you may be offered an appointment with a GP Registrar who will be under the supervision of Dr Somers Heslam. As part of their placement GP Registrars may sometimes need to video consultations for their own education, with patient consent. Our reception team will ensure that you are aware of any such arrangements, please let them know if you would prefer an alternative appointment as soon as possible, preferably when making the initial booking.
Our current GP Registrar is Dr Charles Cooper
Lead Practice Nurse - Paula Darer
