These payscales are valid from April 2005 - April 2006. GP Registrars are also entitled to a car allowance. ... More

by nomad - 10078 reads, based on 8 votes
GP training in the UK - recent changes and future plans There are many changes planned to GP training over the next few years, and this article outlines the current state (including recent changes) as well as exploring some of the changes planned in the next few years. Currently most GPs are trained as part of a Vocational Training scheme (VTS). A full VTS scheme last 3 years, and consists of either four 6 month hospital jobs and 1 year in a practise as a GP Registrar. More recently hybrid schemes have started up which consist of 18 months in hospital and 18 months in practice, or even 12 months in hospital and two years in practice (with day release to various hospital specialities ...

GP Practice in UK: An Overview
by RCGP - 6027 reads, 0 votes
In the nineteenth century medical care was provided by apothecaries, physicians and surgeons1. The latter two had superior qualifications and status, whilst the role of apothecaries (which evolved from Barber Surgeons and were initially only concerned with drugs) became more formalised in the 1815 Apothecaries Act. Part of the Act stated that, to become an apothecary, individuals must obtain a licence from the Society of Apothecaries and undertake an apprenticeship. During the early nineteenth century, the term General Practitioner (GP) was applied to the growing number of apothecaries who took the membership examination of the Royal College of Surgeons of England; and the introduction of th...

Salaried GPs and Primary Care Trusts in UK
by - 17233 reads, 0 votes
A seemingly minor change to the GP contract that pre-dated the larger 2003 complete re-negotiation was that GPs are no longer medicolegally responsible for the actions of a deputy whom they appoint: the deputy is responsible for themselves. A consequence of this is that GPs are less concerned about whether they are in legal partnership with all the doctors who look after their patients. The legal change, coupled with the new trend for new doctors to delay applying for partnerships, has led to a rapid rise in the number of practices who are willing to recruit salaried GPs.... More

General Practitioners (GP) in the UK
by - 9018 reads, based on 1 vote
Individual General Practitioners in the UK currently have, on average, about 1800 patients registered under their care. They almost universally work within a business structure, being contracted by the State to provide certain core medical services for the patients on their list. A typical GPs day usually takes the form of a 2-3 hour surgery in the morning, and another in the afternoon. These surgeries may be by appointment, or open access at the GPs choosing. On average, each patient spends between 5 and 8 minutes with the GP at each such consultation. After morning surgery, UK GPs usually perform home visits, to which patients no longer have an absolute right but which remain the only prac... More

General Practice Vocational Training in UK
by - 7546 reads, based on 4 votes
In parallel with hospital training, doctors who aspire to become General Practitioners (Family Doctors) also undertake a period of hospital-based experience, working as SHOs for two years. The two years must include not less than six months in each of two of Medicine, Geriatrics, Accident and Emergency, Paediatrics, Psychiatry and Obstetrics & Gynaecology. The remaining year is commonly made up of another two from the list, although other options (e.g. Orthopaedics) are permitted. These posts are specifically accredited for General Practice training by the Royal College of General Practitioners, but in practice are virtually indistinguishable from speciality training posts. Many Hospitals, p... More
