We have been a training practice since 1998 and have enjoyed being part of many registrars training. We hope that they have enjoyed their time in Aylsham. We have been involved with teaching students from UEA since the start of the medical school and currently teach one first and two fifth year cohorts.

We are a friendly, relaxed practice and aim to make our registrars feel part of the team. We have five partners and nurse practitioner along with a full range of staff (HCA\\\\\\\'s, practice nurses, midwife, health visitor, district nurses, Macmillan nurse, counsellor, alcohol counsellor). All the doctors and staff are involved with the education and the partners all share debriefing, supervision and tutorials.

Aylsham is a small market town 12 miles north of Norwich. We look after a population of about 8500 patients from the town and the villages in about an 8 mile radius around it. We look after several learning disability units.

Peter Lawson has been a trainer since 2007. Kevin Elsby an associate trainer since 2011. We have been a training practice since 1998. We are able to supervise two registrars in the practice. The medical students are supervised by Pete Lawson, Jamie Mumford and Nazia Ahmed, and as with the registrars, all the partners (and registrars!) are involved in their teaching.

All surgeries are supervised and debriefed and the registrars will have a weekly tutorial. We have a weekly educational and business meeting on a Friday afternoon and bi monthly journal clubs. We all enjoy many varied interests outside work and expect our registrars to balance their work with other interests.

We have excellent facilities. The registrars have their own room and there is a large library/boardroom to use for tutorials and meetings.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ring and speak to either of the trainers on 01263 733331 or to our current registrars. More information about the practice is available on our website www.themarketsurgery.nhs.uk
