GP Training

There is one programme for the speciality of general practice recognised by the Medical Council. This programme is delivered in 14 training schemes around the country.

Specialist training for general practice aims to produce doctors who, on completion of training, will be able to provide personal and continuing care to individuals and families in the community. They will also have the management skills relative to primary care and be able to audit their work with a view to improving performance. General practice training is four years in duration, the first two years spent primarily in hospital settings, with third and fourth year in supervised general practice.

GP Training Handbook
