Our Staff

Doctors

Our GPs work across all our sites (Wallisdown, Northbourne and Bournemouth University). Although you are able to book appointments with any of our GPs, it is usually helpful if you try and see one GP about all your health problems as this means your Doctor will get to know you and your problems and helps us to offer better care.

GP Registrars

Our GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have already worked for several years in Hospitals and are completing their training prior to becoming full-time General Practitioners. They provide care of the same standard provided by the other doctors at Talbot Medical Centre at all times. GP Registrars are usually with us for six months or a year and many of our permanent doctors previously worked as Registrars at the practice.
