Half-day release

The Northallerton GP Training Programme half day release training sessions are held on Thursday afternoons in the Academic Centre, Friarage Hospital. The sessions are from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. with a break for coffee.

We aim to make your learning experience as varied and interesting as possible, while ensuring the teaching is curriculum based and relevant.  We use different models and tools to deliver the teaching sessions.  These include group work, presentations and interactive sessions.  We encourage trainee participation where possible.  We also use the creative arts in some of our sessions (medical humanities).  Please see the creative arts section of this web site. 

We also go off site on occasions for alternative teaching sessions.  These have included Fountains Abbey near Ripon, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield and Botton Village near Danby.  We have also had trips to the Theatre.    

The CSA aspect of our programme is covered by our Training Programme Directors, Dr Peter Green and Dr Chris Webb.  Dr Green has a wealth of experience teaching consultation skills to trainees and running Consultation Skills courses for GP's and Dr Webb is also involved in Consultation Skills courses for GP's and is a Royal College examiner for the CSA exam.

Attendance at all sessions is mandatory and all reasons for absence must be reported beforehand to Wendy Buch via email. If there is no HDR scheduled, you are contracted to be at work, unless you take statutory leave.

Training material used in sessions is available from the downloads section of the site under 'training programme documents'.
