Cookham Medical Centre is a training practice, which means we participate in the advanced training of doctors who wish to go on to become GP's. They are fully qualified doctors with extensive hospital experience and are supervised by Dr Birdi and Dr Swamy.
They work and train with us for up to a year, sharing all aspects of medical care and practice life, in liaison with the partners. Please accept their services as an extension of our own.
During their time with us they see patients in their own clinics. Part of this training involves analysis of videotaped consultations. If this applies to you, we will always ask your permission beforehand. The recording may, with your agreement, be seen later by other doctors for teaching purposes. The code of confidentiality between doctor and patient will of course be adhered to and the video recording will be erased after viewing by the doctors. If after your consultation you decide you would prefer to have the recording erased, please tell the Receptionist before you leave.
The practice is regularly assessed as a training practice by visiting doctors to make sure we continue to meet the necessary requirements as a training practice. Health care professionals may wish to examine some patient records when assessing our practice. If you object to this please let us know.

The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and handling prescription enquiries, patient records, incoming clinical letters and carrying out searches and practice audits.
We also have two secretaries who deal with patient referrals and doctors' correspondence and an Admin team who deal with patient registration and transfer to other practices, insurance reports and medicals as well as data management and clinical coding.
Our Finance Manager is responsible for the smooth running of the financial aspects of the business and provides support and advice to the Doctors and Practice Manager.
