Hospital Jobs: 

These cover a wide range of specialties including A&E, Palliative Medicine, Paediatrics, Obs & Gynae, Psychiatry, Orthopaedics, Acute Medicine, Medicine for the Elderly, Oncology, Respiratory Medicine, Stroke Medicine, Endocrinology&Diabetes, Ophthalmology and ENT. Currently, all hospital posts are transitioning from 6 month rotations to 4 month rotations.

Due to the national expansion of GP trainee numbers, from August 2021 all trainees will complete 12 months in hospital rotations and 24 months in GP rotations- 6months of which will be in an ITP post (Integrated Training Post). ITP posts will see the training week split 50/50 between a GP surgery and a community element.

Our new ITP posts are  likely to cover the following specialties: Renal; Intermediate Care; Perinatal Mental Health; Safeguarding; Treatment & Recovery service; Frailty and Hospice. 


Training Practices:

There are currently 15 training practices with a total of 35 full trainers (Tier 3) and 5 associate trainers (Tier 2b). Please take a look at the links below for the individual surgeries.

Time in GP surgery is split into 6 months in either year 1 or year 2 , 6 months within an ITP post and the final training year spent entirely in a GP surgery.
