Tracks

The GP Training Scheme in Lancaster and Barrow runs over 3 years. The first 2 years (ST 1 & 2) are in secondary care in 4 different hospital posts, one of which is a GP + Post (part GP/part specialty). The 3rd year (ST3) is spent in general practice.

The tracks are allocated by the Programme Directors at each site. Previous experience and personal preferences are taken into account when allocating tracks, however, it is not always possible for everyone to have a track of all their first choice posts.

Lancaster Tracks: There are 12 tracks available in Lancaster which include posts in:

  • Paediatrics
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • Psychiatry
  • Medicine
  • Accident and Emergency
  • Palliative care

“GP Plus” posts (part GP & part specialty) are available in Psychiatry, Palliative care, Paediatrics, O&G and Medicine –in the Acute Medical Unit.

The posts are based at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, The Orchard and East Barn in Psychiatry and St John’s Hospice. There are some community paediatric placements and other community sites within Psychiatry.

Having recently completed ST-2, I've found the quality of information and tutoring to be of the highest standard.

Having served in the NHS as a nurse for the past eight years, I decided to further my medical career. Having moved to Morecambe I can say there are plenty of opportunities for learning, skill development and career progression.

E.TurnerA great course for those wanting new direction
