GP Specialist Trainees

We are an approved site for new GP training. These doctors are called GP Specialist Trainees. They are fully qualified doctors, having spent 5-6 years in medical school; who now wish to specialise in general practice in order to become a GP. This involves a further 3 year training period with 20 months in general practice and 16 months in hospital specialities.

Each GP specialist trainee has a named trainer within the practice who supervises their training. Each GP specialist trainee may spend anywhere between 3-12 months within the practice. We currently have one GP specialist Trainee but may take more in the future.

At times you may be offered an appointment with a GP specialist Trainee. Consultations are carried out by the GP specialist Trainee alone and will be reviewed by the supervising doctor from the practice if the need arises.
