GP training and vocational training (VTS)

A growing resource on GP training. We’ve produced this resource for GP course organisers, GP trainers and GP tutors to help explore and raise issues around the preparedness of GPs-in-training for working as licensed, unsupervised general practitioners once qualified.

Videos, talks, workshops and seminars

Our growing bank of video resources on GP training – get in touch if you’d like us to provide a live Q&A, either via video link or in person (after you-know-what…).

Videos are easy to schedule and distribute, but they lack the engagement of a live presence. Get in touch if you’d like to follow a video presentation on GP training with a live (in-person or remote) Q&A.

A set of three articles and a video exploring cognitive errors and biases, how we approach mistakes and often fail to learn from them.

In this video, we pull together lessons from Black Box Thinking and Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking Fast and Slow and show how exposed a locum can be errors and mistakes during a single morning surgery.

A brief run-through on GP training by NASGP chairman Dr Richard Fieldhouse, a GP locum for 25 years who’s worked in around 100 different practices.

NASGP chairman Dr Richard Fieldhouse deconstructs all the elements that go into a 10-minute consultation with a locum, and how each element can have a significant impact on patient care.

Beginning with how to mentally prepare oneself before even taking a booking, from how to prepare prior to going to the practice, what to do once there, then what to do before, during and after seeing one patient, all the way up to arriving back home.

[Video coming soon – in production]

Workshop or video with our partners Medical Protection on the top ten risk areas for GP locums, and what you can do to manage this risk.
