Update on Scarlet Fever and invasive Group A Streptococci

Scarlet fever is usually a mild illness, but it is highly infectious. Therefore, look out for symptoms in your child, which include a sore throat, headache, and fever, along with a fine, pinkish or red body rash with a sandpapery feel.

Training Practice

We are a training practice and regularly host medical students and F2 Doctors from the Peninsula Medical School.
It is possible that a student may sit in on your appointment. Your consent for this will be sought. If you are not happy for the student to be present during your consultation, please advise the GP or Nurse.
F2 Doctors are in their second year of Foundation Training and have completed a medical degree, 12 months of clinical experience and have full registration with a licence to practise from the General Medical Council.
You may see an F2 Doctor either on their own or with another doctor.  A GP at this practice will ensure that the F2 Doctor is practising safely and will provide help and support when required.  They will also be working with the F2 to ensure that they gain all they can from the learning opportunities presented in this practice.
This practice supports F2 training but you can decline to be seen by an F2 Doctor without having to give a reason and your care will not be affected in any way.
If you would prefer not to see a F2 doctor please inform the receptionist.

Due to hosting medical students and F2 Doctors we do not have the capacity to offer work experience placements for school-age pupils.
