Clinical Training


The Crouch Oak Family Practice is an accredited training practice. We have been involved for many years in the post-graduate training of fully qualified doctors who wish to enter general practice. These doctors are called GP registrars and work in the Practice, under the supervision of one of our GP trainers, for 12 months as part of their specialist GP training.  We also train doctors in the second year of a foundation programme which all doctors undertake following qualification. They spend four months in the Practice and work with all members of the team. Currently our main GP trainer is Dr Mohan Kanag.

Occasionally we also have nursing and advanced paramedic students at the Practice. You may come across a student working with any member of the Practice team. If you do not wish a student to be present during your consultation, just tell us and your wishes will be respected.

Video-recording consultations

As part of our training and commitment to improving our service, we may video consultations. Any examinations will not be recorded - only the consultation. Your consent will always be sought before this is done.  If you do not wish your consultation to be recorded on video we will of course respect your wishes.

Our Research Unit

Our Research Unit

We have a busy research unit, running clinical trials in various therapeutic areas which include diabetes, hypercholesterolaemia, respiratory disease and other areas.

Dr Asamoah manages the research unit alongside two research nurses, Rachel Chambers and Lesley Cole, and a research administrator, Alicja Kurowska.

The research unit is open from Monday to Friday.  To contact us, please call the main practice number on 01932 840123 and ask to be put through to the research unit.   The best time to call is after 11:30 in the morning. 

The Crouch Oak Family Practice carries out research in collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the research arm of the NHS. You can find out more about the NIHR here:

We are grateful to the patients and carers who can give their time and commitment to help with medical research.

Studies can vary from observational projects, questionnaire studies, uses of new medication and longer term research following patients with various conditions for many years. Such studies may aim to help with the development of treatments, pathways of care and improving patient care.
The Crouch Oak Family Practice has previously supported studies in a wide variety of disease areas including Diabetes, Cholesterol Lowering, Hypertension, Vaccinations, Asthma, COPD, Pain Relief, Depression and Constipation.

Research is important to patients because it can help work out which treatments work better for which patients. Although patients may not directly benefit from taking part in researches themselves, they may help inform better healthcare for future patients.

The “OK to Ask” campaign encourages more patients or carers to ask about research opportunities that could be available to them or loved ones.  You can read more about this here:
