General Practitioner

Dr Whiting

Looking after all aspects of a patients’ needs – physical, emotional, social – is a vital part of any GP’s role. GPs see patients of all ages and spend a significant amount of time seeing patients in individual consultations, as well as completing admin and training, and attending practice meetings.

General Practitioners

  • Performs clinical examinations of patients to assess, diagnose and monitor their condition
  • Provides a diagnosis from completing investigations (eg, blood tests)
  • Supports patients to look after themselves

Entry requirements:

  • Completed university medical degree, followed by a two-year foundation programme – this is prior to three years of GP speciality training
  • It is also possible for doctors in training, or already qualified in another speciality, to apply for GP speciality training
