Training Practice


Church View Surgery is pleased to be able to offer training places for doctors training to become GP's through the Harrogate Training Scheme.  Our registrars are fully qualified doctors and have a great deal of hospital experience.

Registrars are attached to our practice for six to twelve months and patients find their fresh, enthusiastic approach adds to the health care we provide and they will be seeing patients at both Collingham and Thorner branches.

The registrars usually become general practitioners after completing their training and are encouraged at all times to seek advice when required from the practice partners.  

As part of their training they will occasionally be assessed on video recorded consultations which we hope you will allow them to complete. All consultation material will be kept confidential and not placed on your records.  No recording will take place without your consent and you have the right to ask for the recording to be deleted at anytime.

Our training GPs may also ask for patient feedback. The named GP Trainer at the practice is Dr K Baldwin and the Registrar is Dr Jonathan Keane

Patient Triage

We have now gone live with our new online consultation service - Patient Triage. This is a great way for you to contact our practice for non-urgent medical or admin requests.

It is very simple to fill out so please do give it a go if you need to contact us. Although the character count is limited on the form, please try to give as much specific and concise information as possible.

We really think it is easier for most people than waiting on hold to speak to a receptionist but would love to hear your feedback. If you do not have access to the internet or find it difficult to use a computer or smartphone you can call reception instead.


You can access the new form from our website - see the link on the Home Page or use the following link:

Check In and Chat Volunteers provide short-term telephone support to people who need a chat and some encouragement to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Ear Wax

Ear irrigation (syringing) is no longer available at Collingham Church View Surgery. Ear syringing is not considered to be the first line treatment for clearing wax. Unfortunately, it is not a funded service within the NHS for General Practice and we do not have the resource to undertake this work. Therefore, in line with many other surgeries nationwide, we made the difficult decision to withdraw ear syringing with effect from July 2020.

For further advice on management of ear wax and also private providers of ear wax removal, please click here.
