The Norfolk General Practice Speciality Training Programme

Training in Norfolk & Waveney

From August 2017 the three, long established GP Speciality Training Schemes in Norfolk are merging to form the Norfolk GPSTS scheme.

Where would I be training?

The majority of our individual training programmes have hospital posts based between The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and one of the James Paget University Hospital and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

There are some individual training programmes where the hospital posts are solely based in one hospital (JPUH, QEH or NNUH)

Each ITP is linked to pairs of GP training placements in geographically appropriate pairings

How do I apply?
