Teaching Practice Information
The Ridge Medical Practice helps to train GP’s, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses and Healthcare Support Workers in the particular skills of General Practice.
The GP Registrar is a doctor who has completed a period of recognised hospital work and is now undergoing further training to prepare for general practice.
From time to time, Medical Students training to become doctors visit the practice, together with Nursing Students. This often proves to be a useful experience for both patients and students.
Patients are always informed if a student is sitting in with the doctor. If you do not wish to see a student, please let us know.
We would love to hear your feedback on our services whether it’s the Friends and Family test, reception services or telephone services. Your feedback is vital to ensure we improve our offering moving forward. To have you say please visit our survey below:
We always try to provide the very best service possible, so we are always looking for ways to understand which parts of our service patients think are really good, and which parts of our service patients feel could be improved. We take all feedback very seriously. It’s important we know about the good bits as well as the not so good bits, so we know what to do more of and what we need to change. We are just human beings like everyone else – it’s nice to know when we are doing well and patients appreciate us! And when things aren’t right, we’ll do our best to make it better.

The practice is committed to sustainable working and places high regard to our local and wider environment. We are participating in the Green Impact Scheme, which is a project of the Royal College of General Practice, actively looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint. As part of this we have moved towards less paper use, we have looked at helping patients choose the type of inhalers which have the least environmental impact and we have made a concerted effort to reduce plastic wastage. This is an ongoing process as we look into further improvements we can make to prioritise the health and wellbeing of our community.
