Is GP training being extended?
Whilst it is generally felt to be a good idea to extend the standard GP
training programme to 5 years, there are no definite plans for this to
happen in the near future. Deaneries will continue to offer standard 3
year GP training programmes in 2011 and 2012. A few deaneries also offer
some 4 year programmes where usually, but not always, the extra year is
spent in a general practice or community setting. Please refer to
individual deanery web sites for
