Our philosophy also is that we do not discriminate against gender race religion etc. All patients need to have equal rights and the financial status of the patient should not stand as a barrier for treatment and we en-devour to assist our patients when needed."
Random Case audit and case discussion we found is very practical and useful so we do it regularly.
Based on the level and interest of the trainee whether a medical student or a registrar we use tutorials power points teleconferencing and skyping. Attending CPD events workshops and group discussions and discussion of the outcomes with members of the practice who were unable to attend are part of our ongoing training style and quality improvement.
We have used video recording of the consultations/procedures as well whenever possible."
