Teaching and Training




The Old Church Surgery is an accredited GP training Practice and is committed to providing suitable training for the next generation of General Practitioners.

All Trainees are supported and mentored by Dr Grenville, Dr James and Dr Rahman.



July 2015: Old Church Surgery is a great training Practice to work at. Trainees are an essential part of the friendly Practice team, and they will gain lots of experience in managing patients in the community. The support from the two trainers is excellent, and they will always make an effort to ensure that all the required eportfolio assessments are done. The balance between supervision and independence is important and the Old Church Surgery will enable you to gain all the experience to become the independent clinical practitioner who you are when you leave. It has been a fantastic place to work during my GP training and I shall miss it!


March 2021: Thank you once again for a fantastic first experience of working in General Practice. I have really enjoyed my placement here. Everyone from the receptionists to the GPs, nursing team and patients themselves have been friendly and supportive. I have received lots of time from the GP tutors who are always happy to discuss any case with me. My Supervisor Dr James was always fun, approachable and keen to support my learning. The atmosphere in the Practice is positive and warm, and it is a lovely place to work, especially during these dark months of Covid and Lockdown. I hope to return one day!
