Chaperones

Langley Corner Surgery is committed to providing a safe, comfortable environment where patients and staff are confident that the best practice is being followed at all times.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they may feel one is required. If you require a chaperone to be present it would be a trained member of our staff.

Whenever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking the appointment. If this is not possible we will try to provide a chaperone at the time of the request, however if a chaperone is not available it would be necessary to rearrange the appointment.

Please ask at reception to view our full chaperone procedure.

Training Practice

At Langley Corner we are committed to the training of future healthcare professionals as well as development opportunities for our current team. 

GP Training

We are a GP training practice authorised by and accountable to the Kent Surrey and Sussex Deanery. We currently have four active trainers: Dr Kansagra, Dr Ali, Dr Gunasegaram and Dr Murphy.

GP trainees are fully qualified doctors and see patients and do home visits in the same way as our other GPs. 

Medical Students

We often have medical students join us on a placement from St Georges or Brighton medical school. We are always grateful for patients who are willing to be seen by a medical student to increase their learning opportunities, and you may be offered an appointment with one either before or during your appointment with a doctor or nurse. You are entitled to decline to see a medical student.
