GP Placements

The GP placements are where our trainees fully develop into rounded GPs. We offer a three-year training programme in which 18 months is spent in general practice. In a recent assessment by East of England Deanery’s GP School, feedback from our GP posts was rated “A” (the highest possible rating).

Our GP posts take place in one of fourteen approved training practices currently linked to our Training Scheme.
