Teaching and Training

Medical & Nursing Students

We are a teaching practice and students sometimes sit in with the doctors and nurses. We are proud to be involved in developing the NHS workforce for the future.

If you would prefer not to have a student sitting in, please let the doctor or receptionist know prior to your appointment. This will not affect your medical care in any way.

General Practitioner Registrars

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors completing post-graduate specialist training in general practice. They are supervised by "GP trainers" within the practice.

 We currently have two final year registrars who will be with us until August 2021:

  • Dr Felicity Mcewan
  • Dr Abigail Eastman

Additional training

We are also actively involved in teaching Practice Pharmacists


Videos of Consultations

As part of on-going training some doctors may on occasion video their consultations. This is so we can improve and develop our clinical and communication skills.

Consent to video will always  be obtained from patients prior to the consultation. You, of course, have the opportunity to say no to the video at any point before, during or after the appointment. The videos will only ever be shared with other professionals for teaching or training purposes and will be deleted after use.



Please see the following testomonials that we have received from previous trainees: 

"Excellent training practice in a relatively deprived part of Islington which enabled me to gain lots of experience dealing with a diverse set of health and social problems as well as using language line and face-to-face interpreters. The thing I valued most about my ST3 year at River Place was the teaching and support I gained from the whole team. It was a wonderful environment to learn in promoting independent practice but also providing enough clincial support so that I felt I could always ask for help if needed."
