Sefton & North Liverpool

Southport and Sefton are two of the most attractive parts of the North West both offering broad and contrasting appeal. An area to the north of Liverpool and featuring mile after mile of scenic coast, Southport is a thriving town which built its name as a classic English resort, adjoined to the south with the busier district of Sefton, which is also regarded as a popular area to live and work.

The entire region is serviced by excellent road and rail links and is easily reachable from both the bright lights of Liverpool and Manchester, but far enough away to have its own identity.

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 Sefton and North Liverpool you will be contacted by Dr Jennifer Topping, the Training Programme Director for that area. Dr Topping 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 Topping will then try as much as possible, with the hospital posts available to her, 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.

The Report also indicated that the hospital HSMR mortality indicator was better than expected.
