Training practice

Wareham Surgery is a “Training Practice”. Our Trainees (ST2s or ST3s) are fully-qualified doctors who have chosen General Practice as their career, and who, since gaining their degree in Medicine, will already have had at least three years of experience working as doctors in various hospital specialties.

They can provide care of the same standard as that given by the other doctors within the practice, but also enjoy close clinical supervision by GP Partners at the practice, and will refer to the partner who is their Trainer if necessary.

As part of their assessment in training, GP Trainees have to sometimes video-record consultations. These recordings are strictly confidential and only seen by doctors involved in their assessment. Video-recording of consultations is only ever done with your express written consent, and you may choose to withhold such consent without giving any reason or affecting your care in any way.

Dr Nathan Francis and Dr Hannah Francis are approved GP Trainers, and will be responsible for the supervision of all GP Trainees.

GP net earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Wareham Surgery in the last financial year was £74,396 before tax and National Insurance. This is for no full time GPs, 8 part time GPs, and no locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months
