New GP registrar

Dr Gallacher starts as a GP registrar at Thornton Medical Practice.

We are very pleased to announce that following Thornton and Denholme surgery’s recent approval as a training practice, we have now been allocated our first GP trainee. We welcome Dr Gallacher to the surgery who will be in training with us for the next 6 months. Dr Gallacher is a fully qualified doctor, who has started a 3 year training program to become a general practitioner. She will be working closely alongside the other GPs but seeing patients independently and is fully able to prescribe and treat all conditions, like any other of the GPs working in the surgery. Dr Gallacher will be working with us until February 2020.
