Welcome to the Peterborough GP
Specialty Training Programme

The Peterborough GP Training Programme was one of the first schemes to be set up in the early 1970s.  It has continued to develop in order to meet the needs of today's GP Trainees and has undergone recent expansion.

The main philosophy of the scheme continues primarily to focus on training excellent GPs with the core traditional values of General Practice while being adaptable to the challenges of the changing healthcare landscape.

The scheme is privileged to have a rich variety of Trainers and Training practices scattered over three counties (Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire & Northamptonshire). The diversity of Training Practices range from inner city to sub urban to rural practices.  All trainees are posted to two different Practices during their training enabling them the opportunity to experience a varied range of General Practice.
