General Practice - Training and working as a GP in Herefordshire
Training for General Practice
Why not come to our beautiful county and join our local Vocational Training Scheme for General Practice? Herefordshire has a well-established training programme. The hospital experience is based at Hereford County Hospital in the heart of the city of Hereford, and surgery-based jobs are within the county and within easy reach of Hereford City. We have a mixture of rural and city training practices and you are usually able to spend time in both. The half-day release programme takes place on the hospital site at the Post-Graduate Medical Centre. We have a high ratio of TPDs to trainees, and you will feel part of a supportive training environment throughout your time here. You will be valued as an important member of the health-care community, and will be encouraged to develop areas that interest you. We are always pleased when our trainees stay on and work in Herefordshire once their training is complete. Raise your family in a stunning, vibrant and family-friendly location. Take advantage of our first class leisure facilities and indulge your love of the outdoors. Experience the vast array of music, fine dining, theatre, the Arts and local artisan products in the friendly surroundings of our beautiful city, market towns and villages.
