Liverpool & Birkenhead

Liverpool and Birkenhead are two great locations at the heart of the North West of England separated by the River Mersey: Birkenhead being situated on the Wirral peninsula, easily accessible to Liverpool either just a short ferry ride away or by the road tunnel.

Strategically located, the Liverpool area has outstanding road and rail connections, as well as operating a busy sea terminal from the city centre waterfront and the John Lennon International Airport which is around 10 miles from the city centre. The motorway links in and out of Liverpool and Birkenhead also serve as the perfect launch pad for excursions into nearby North Wales and the stunning Lake District. London is little more than two hours away by train.

Tracks

Currently, GP training comprises of 18 months in primary care and 18 months in hospital posts.

Where possible we like you to experience a 6 month GP post early in your training. This is to help you focus on what you would wish to get out of your hospital attachments.

Allocating Tracks

Allocating Tracks

When you have been successful in your application to come to the Liverpool & Birkenhead Scheme you will be contacted by Dr Tobias Keyser, the Training Programme Director for that area. He will ask you to name your ideal 4 hospital posts to enhance your GP training. You may consider your previous experience when describing this - more weight would be attached to post-foundation experience.

Dr Keyser will then try as much as possible, with the hospital posts available to him, to match your request. If there are not enough posts available in a particular speciality then priority will be given to the person with the higher recruitment score. We do our best when matching preferences.

You may be eligible for accreditation of transferable competencies. To qualify, you must be transferring into general practice from one of the RCGP Approved Speciality Training Programmes

If you intend to apply for less than full time training, you would need to apply formally using the HENW website.

In Liverpool and Birkenhead we have the following ITP Posts available: Palliative Care, Community Paediatrics & Community Diabetics

Walton Centre

https://www.thewaltoncentre.nhs.uk

0151 525 3611

This hospital was formerly known as the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Walton is the only specialist neurosciences NHS trust within the country, being fully dedicated to providing comprehensive neurological, neurosurgical and pain management services. The hospital does not have an accident and emergency department but it acts as a designated major trauma centre, due to the fact that it still receives emergency transfers for those within the region who have sustained neurological trauma.

The Walton Centre was originally based at the Rice Lane site but, due to popular demand, they expanded to Fazakerley, two miles further north. The Centre finally achieved NHS Trust status in 2009. Their services continue to increase.


Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

http://www.lhch.nhs.uk

0151 600 1616

Sometimes referred to as Broadgreen due to its location, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital serves a catchment area of 2.8 million people, spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man, but increasingly receives referrals from outside these areas for highly specialised services, such as aortics. It performs up to 12,000 procedures a year.

As part of the hospital’s long term plan, the aim is to form strong clinical and organisational relationships wherever possible. There is clear evidence that partnerships improve patient care and enhance quality and the objective is to collaborate with a range of other providers and professionals with a view to extending access and to improve quality.

Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital became the first specialist hospital within the UK to be awarded an ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. In addition, it was also named by the Health Service Journal as one of the top hundred NHS trusts to work for in 2015. This was in recognition of the fact that at the time the hospital had 135 full-time staff and a sickness absence rate of just 4.13%. Furthermore, 92% of its staff also recommended it as a place for treatment, whilst 62% of its staff recommended it as a good place to work.
