Having contacted our local GP surgery in Cambridge for an appointment, my wife was startled to be told that she would be seeing a "trainee". A trainee what?
Having attended, she came back thoroughly disgruntled having seen somebody with "the life experience of an amoeba and the humanity of a barracuda".
She wasn't impressed by his medical knowledge, either - and ended up insisting on treatment previously prescribed for her symptoms by the (qualified) GP she usually sees.
Who ARE these "trainees"? Are they actually qualified doctors?
