Staff training

Occasionally, the surgery will be temporarily closed for a few hours for staff training and important meetings. Advance notice will be given as the telephone lines will only be answered for emergency calls during this time.

Minchinhampton Surgery participates in the advanced training of experienced doctors who are seeking to specialize in General Practice. Placements for GP trainees (previously known as registrars) are usually for 6 months or 1 year.

Research

Our Practice takes part in medical research. The work is undertaken in partnership with universities and other organisations, with the aim of improving all aspects of Primary Care. You may be invited to take part in a research project. Under no circumstances would any information about you, identifiable or not, be released to any research organisation without your fully informed, written consent.

Travel to the surgery

  • As set out in the second cycling and walking investment strategy (CWIS2), the UK Government wants walking, wheeling and cycling to be the natural first choice for shorter journeys – as these are the least carbon-intensive ways to travel.
  • We encourage patients wherever possible to use active travel (a travel mode that involves a level of activity), such as walking or cycling, when travelling to the surgery
  • For patients that may find it difficult to make their own way to the surgery, our Patient Participation Group (PPG) runs a Volunteer Transport Scheme – which offers friendly & cheap patient transport to the surgery. For more information, please visit the PPG section of our website
  • Alternatively, please visit the Gloucestershire County Council website for information (including bus timetables) on using public transport to get to the surgery
