Non-urgent advice: Information for Trainers

You should receive regular emails from the scheme and HEE. If you are not please contact the scheme administrator to be added to the mailing list.


Trainer re-approval is being changed. The process you should follow in the interim period is detailed in these two documents:

Non-urgent advice: Trainers’ Workshops

Current Chair Dr Chris Jones Derwent Surgery, Malton

Workshops usually take place every two months and alternate between a half day and a 2 hour evening session. We have a Trainer’s Away Day once a year usually in November.

These are currently taking place on Zoom.

Non-urgent advice: Educational Resources

These websites have great resources and ideas for GP training:

Bradford VTS

Pennine VTS

The Art of Medicine

Non-urgent advice: Other Educational Events for Trainers

In addition to regular local trainers’ workshops HEE organise educational events e.g. Spring and Autumn School. You should be notified of these by email.

There are also a number of national conferences that many GP and Medical Educators attend. See below.
