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.

Due to COVID 19 and social distancing regulations we are delivering the sessions via teams.  This is streamed into the Postgraduate lecture room to allow trainees in the hospital to attend.

Please ensure that we have your nhs.net email address or you may not be able to join.  You will receive an email invitation and you must accept this in order to access the meeting. 

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 Director, Dr Peter Green.  Dr Green has a wealth of experience teaching consultation skills to trainees and running Consultation Skills courses for GP's.

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'.
