GP Speciality Training Education Sessions - Half Day Release Course

Education sessions are designed to offer GP Speciality Registrars tuition that is relevant to their training. The specific arrangements for each group may vary from scheme to scheme.

In general education sessions, for all schemes the groups are split as follows:

  • ST1 and ST2 secondary care posts
  • Any GP posts in ST1 and ST2
  • GP posts in ST3

ST1 and ST2 during their Secondary Care (Hospital) Posts

This group is made up of GP Speciality Registrars in hospital posts from ST1 and ST2. Hospitals have agreed to release all GP Registrars for one half day per month to attend these sessions.

Topics are largely generated by the registrars themselves and are mapped to the RCGP GP Curriculum. During these sessions, we would also try to link hospital experience to General Practice or Primary Care. Sessions are flexible and include input from each group of GP Speciality Registrars. The sessions are led by Primary Care Medical Educators at various venues within each area/scheme:

  • Liverpool & Birkenhead – The Women’s Hospital, Aintree Hospitals
  • St Helens & Knowsley – Gregan House, The Spinney Medical Centre, St Helens, WA10 3EE 
  • Sefton and North Liverpool - Aintree Hospitals Postgraduate Medical Centre
  • Warrington and Halton – Warrington Hospital, Postgraduate Medical Centre
