GP Placements in ST1 &2
Brief description of placement:
There are currently 25 training practices. Many have two or more Trainers. Once a trainee has their rotation confirmed, an Educational Supervisor is assigned to them who are based at the GP Practice they are placed with in their 6 month Practice post and who will remain so for ST1 and ST2 training.
All practices are different. They vary from town to rural, demographics of the population, employment, deprivation and ranges of life expectancy.
Many practices are purpose built health centres, but a few old converted buildings remain.
The culture and philosophy of each practice will be fundamentally different. Practices will have patient participation groups which range from highly active and involved teams to virtual groups.
