We are a Training Practice

Sunlight Group Practice is an Enhanced Training Practice

Sunlight surgery is proud to be an approved training practice for both undergraduate and postgraduate doctors. All our GPs have a keen interest in training and education. We believe passionately in improving primary care in the UK through education and training new GPs. Junior doctors and GPs in training make up an increasing number of doctors in primary care nationally as well as here at Sunlight. They usually stay with us on placement 6-12 months.

You may see a doctor in their first few years following qualification or a GP in training at Sunlight. These doctors are well supported by qualified GPs in practice and are always able to get advice from a qualified GP if needed. Please don’t be alarmed if a training doctor asks for advice from a senior GP during your consultation, we are committed to providing the best clinical care possible to our patients.

You may see the following doctors at Sunlight Group Practice:

Student Doctor. A student training to become a doctor before they have qualified. You will also be seen by a qualified GP if you see a student doctor.

Foundation doctors F1 and F2. These are qualified doctors that are in their first 2 years following qualification as a doctor. They have often worked as doctors in hospitals and A&E before coming to Sunlight. They can always access support from a qualified GP.

GP Specialist Trainees (Registrars), GP ST. These are doctors undergoing specialist training to become a GP. They are fully qualified doctors who have worked for several years in hospital specialties before starting specialist training to be a GP. GP ST1 doctors are in their first years of specialist GP training, GP ST2 are in year 2 and GP ST3 are in their final year of training to become a GP. They always have access to support from a fully qualified GP.


Student Nurses

The practice has Student Nurses on placement with us and we are also responsible for finding placements for up to 80 Student Nurses per year in local practices.

You may meet these Student Nurses as they shadow our clinician’s consultations.


We need to future proof the Nursing workforce and encourage student to take the path of General Practice Nursing.

We are able to provide training in 3 areas a Nurse needs to study in to qualify so we are an ideal site to train these Nurses;

  • Children
  • Elderly
  • Mental Health

We value your support
