Medical Students

Aldborough Surgery Needs your Support

Aldborough Surgery is a training practice for 4th year medical students from the University of East Anglia and we are currently trying to recruit patients to volunteer to come and speak with our medical students on one of the following three modules (this is not a group participation with other patients).

  • Women’s Health, Obstetrics & Gynaecology
    (for example: benign breast lumps, breast cancer, mastectomy, vaginal prolapse, ectopic pregnancy,  menopause, HRT, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, miscarriage, bladder problems, hysterectomy, infertility, IVF, patients currently pregnant).
  • Babies / Children’s Health & General Development
    (age range from new born to 16-17 years of age – this Module covers any medical condition and/or general development).
  • Mental Health
    (for example: anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, panic attacks, bipolar, eating disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress syndrome, phobias, post-natal depression).

If you currently have or have had in the past one of the medical conditions above, or have any other condition not listed under the three modules that would be appropriate, and you would be happy to come and speak to two or three medical students on a Monday for 1 hour (appointment times are 10:00 and 14:00).

All appointments with the students will be confidential.

Please ask reception for more information.

You could win yourself £25 worth of shopping vouchers by way of a ‘thank you’ from the surgery for taking part, if your name is drawn from the list of participants at the end of each module.

Feedback from patients who have come to speak to medical students in the past have been very positive and many patients come back year on year to speak with the new intake of 4th year medical students.

We sincerely hope you could be one of them.
