Pennine Northwest GP Training

Why not come to the Pennines for a great GP training experience?

Welcome to the website of The Pennine GP Training Programme. We are located to the west of the Pennines matching the footprint of the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. We hope that you'll find the site helpful and that it will give you a flavour of GP speciality training in this vibrant and picturesque area of the country.

About the Scheme

The scheme covers a diverse range of geographical settings; from open moorland right through some well-known northern post-industrial towns,; each undergoing active and significant regeneration. It alos covers the city of Manchester; one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in Europe.

We strive each year to continue our tradition of excellence in GP Training and believe we have continued to build upon our strong foundations. The aim of this section is to give you a brief outline of the Pennine programme.

About the Programme

The Programme is run by a dedicated, enthusiastic team of Educators, Trainers and Administrators, supported by The North West Deanery and our Hospital colleagues. The Pennine GP Specialty training is a 3-year programme which offers a range of GP placements in Bury, North Manchester, Oldham and Rochdale. These reflect the diversity of the health, social and economic needs of the local communities.

Our innovative training programme offers GP placement in rural and small town settings, and a wide variety of hospital posts across 4 sites including Fairfield General Hospital, Royal Oldham Hospital, Rochdale Infirmary and North Manchester General Hospital. Hospital placements are for six months, giving you an opportunity to gain exposure to a wide range of specialties during ST years 1&2. You will complete three hospital posts in your ST years 1 & 2.

We are also proud to offer a number of "GP Plus" posts. These new posts involve part of the time in General Practice and part in a Specialty. Our current GP Plus training posts include Dermatology, Rheumatology, GUM, Infectious Diseases, Women’s Health, Old Age Psychiatry and Diabetes.

In ST1&2 there is a Structured Education Programme which takes place each Thursday afternoon during term time. This is based at Royal Oldham and North Manchester hospital education centres. This has a mixture of lectures and small group work and our innovative 'Focus Groups' for those Trainees in GP Plus Posts.

In GPST3 you will spend a year in a training practice to conclude your training. Ever since August 2007 it has been mandatory to pass the MRCGP exam, which in turn allows you to apply for the certificate to practice independently as a General Practitioner anywhere in the UK.

The Structured Education Programme continues in ST3 for a full day on a Thursday each week. This comprises of a mixture of lectures and small group work and includes our innovative 'Virtual Surgeries' and 'Theme days'.

A typical 3-year rotation for the scheme would be:

• 6 months Hospital Speciality
• 6 months Hospital Speciality
• 6 months GP Plus Post
• 6 months Hospital Speciality
• 12 months General Practice

The programme offers 47 fixed tracks, with different rotations. The programme rotations are designed to be as flexible as possible in relation to individual posts. The programme is flexible allowing for Less-Than-Full-Time (LTFT) attachments, if appropriate.
