Welcome to the East of England School of General Practice website which provides information for trainees, educators and all other colleagues interested in primary care education.

The GP School has an extensive network of primary care educators supporting education at all career stages; we work with GP practices, Trusts and Universities throughout the East of England. We seek to support the development of all learning organisations for the benefit of clinicians and all colleagues in primary care.  Whether you are a trainee or an established practitioner, we aim to assist you in your educational journey to achieve the highest quality of clinical practice for patients. We are always keen to receive feedback on our work and welcome your comments and suggestions on specific developments or our work in general.

Our role is to commission, develop and support the workforce required to deliver first class primary care within the East of England and beyond. Our values are embodied in the NHS constitution; we work with service commissioners such as Area teams and Clinical Commissioning Groups to build the clinicians and the NHS of the future, with the enhancement of the care of the individual patient at the centre of all our endeavours. Accordingly although we are one of the biggest Schools of General Practice in the country we seek to provide personal support to each student or trainee as an individual.

Health Education England working across the east of England (HEE EoE) and its predecessor organisation, the East of England Multi-Professional Deanery, has a long history of being at the forefront of educational development and personal support.  

Our introduction of a single employer for all GP specialty trainees, St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, demonstrates our commitment to continual improvement. Visit  http://www.sthk.nhs.uk/ for more details and the GP specialty trainee forum.

We have a small but friendly team. If you cannot find the information you require on these pages or in our FAQ, contact us at communityschools.eoe@hee.nhs.uk

Primary care is continually evolving. The GP School is changing in parallel, so make sure you keep an eye on these pages to ensure you always have the most recent information.
