GP Trainee Recruitment

General Practice ST1 


East of England

Here in the East of England we pride ourselves on the high quality of training that we offer to individual trainees who want to become GPs.

This region of England has all the advantages of city and rural life; it contrasts areas of great

social need and affluence. We have training practices in all these areas offering a variety of

practice styles. 

There is over 300 miles of coastline running from the Thames estuary to the Wash with some famous coastal resorts and ports along its length. The region is steeped in history and has been the seat of many of the British revolutionary thinkers and activists from Boadicea to the present day.

None of our cities are large and all are surrounded by wonderful countryside, we even have

some hills in our southwest corner. The transport links to London and the North are good with access to two international airports.

In the East of England we believe individual people are important; we try to ensure your

learning journey from trainee to GP is a great experience. We combine innovation with

consistently high standards for the delivery of education. We are sure that you will feel at home on one of the many programmes that we have to offer. Out ultimate aim is to persuade you to stay and join our GP community.

In addition to your 3 years to General Practice training we offer exciting opportunities to enhance your training and future career.  Global Health Fellowships are challenging and rewarding and include a 12 months OOPE to work in a hospital in rural South Africa. Guaranteed release from your hospital and/or practice to attend annual camps for those in the Army Reserve and Academic Clinical Fellow posts linked to the prestigious Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Make sure you make us your first choice.
