Registrars are qualified doctors who have completed their medical degree and have undertaken a minimum of 2 years training in a public hospital. These doctors have chosen to specialise as a General Practitioner just as a surgeon or paediatrician undertakes further studies to specialise in their field. Registrars work under the supervision of the experienced GP’s in the practice and you are always welcome to ask the Registrar to double check management with your regular GP.
