About Us

Sedbergh Medical Practice Lancaster University Medical School

Sedbergh Medical Practice is proud to be teaching practice and we regularly have medical students from Lancaster University Medical School on placement here working with our GPs and nurses.

Final year students will have their own booked appointments on Monday and Wednesday afternoons followed by an appointment with a GP. You may also be asked whether you are happy to consult with them for other appointments, ie open surgery, blood clincs etc. 

Third Year students may be asked by the doctors to take a history of your medical problem, and may sit in on your consultation. We also pre-arrange appointments for the following disiplines:- Physical or communication disability, Diabetes and Dermatology if you would be interested in speaking to the students about how this effects you please let us know, we are always looking for volunteers.

Student Nurses are also here with us on rotation and work closely with our practice nurses and healthcare assistants

You are perfectly within your rights to ask for the student not to be present if you so wish, please let the receptionist know.
