Manchester GPST Programme

This scheme is based in Central and South Manchester. The hospital component is delivered in Central Manchester University Hospitals (CMFT) and University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM). ST1/2/3 GP attachment may be in central / south Manchester practices but we also occasionally use Stockport and Tameside practices due to capacity issues.

Manchester is a great place to train; just about every permutation of professional and personal life can be catered for. There is a great range of General Practices from inner city high density living, to more relaxed suburbs with complex family networks.

The Manchester cultural scene is a major attraction for doctors in training. Cultural and sporting life is easily accessible, diverse and entertaining. This makes for a satisfying personal life when not working.

Many of the doctors who train in this area become General Practitioners locally, and some are now trainers themselves.

New Trainees

Have you just joined the GP training Scheme?  ....Welcome!  We're sure you'll have a great time, learn and develop in ways you would hardly have imagined.  It's worth trying to make the best impression you can in the first few days of the post, eg friendliness, interest in the job and all your colleagues at every level, willingness to work hard, willingness to listen to instructions and advice.   A little extra effort in the first few days is likely to be really worthwhile.

Hopefully you can find lots of useful information, guidance and resources on the website.
