Leatside Surgery is a training practice and usually has a fully qualified doctor (registrar) working with us training to be a GP, whose previous experience has been gained mainly in hospital medicine. The registrar will see patients with Dr Watkins and/or Hossack, to start with, then on their own.

We currently have 3 doctors training with us:
