To become an independent general practitioner, doctors must undertake at least three years training on a GP vocational training scheme (GPVTS). This three year training cycle includes at least 12 months in a GP practice with the remainder of the three years in approved hospital posts.
We run two separate GPVTS schemes. One is based at Epsom Hospital and the other at St Helier Hospital.
Further information on both training schemes can be found on their respective websites:
St Helier GPVTS teaching is on Thursday afternoons between 2-3pm in the Whitehall Lecture Theatre.
The two Epsom GP teaching programmes can be found below:
We welcome attendance from other healthcare professionals in the community, however you must RSVP first to confirm your place (contacts available below).
Programme Directors: Dr Terri Lovis, Dr Hana Patel and Dr James Steinhardt
