Primary care

We train GPs to work holistically, not as mini-specialists in everything. Our training programmes offer high quality taught courses throughout the training period. We offer a complete range of experience in general practice from rural to inner city including a wide variety of selected and supervised hospital posts throughout the area as well as a large and growing number of integrated training posts.

What are my career prospects?

After training, most GPs undertake a period of further work experience before settling down in partnership, working as salaried GPs, locums, career start or retainers. They often do out of hours work, become GPs with special interests, or work in prison medicine, sports medicine, the armed forces, occupational health, palliative care, the pharmaceutical industry, medical law, insurance medicals, the DSS, academic practice, teaching and training, police surgeon work or undertake work abroad… check out our Health Careers website for more details.
