East Midlands covers an area from Worksop and Retford in the north to Northamptonshire in the south and from the Peak District in the west to the East Coast of Lincolnshire. We have great transport links whether travelling by rail or road, as the M1 is on our doorstep, or by air as East Midlands Airport is on the border of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
Our Programmes offer 20 months in General Practice. We are the first LETB in the UK to offer this for General Practice training. It will offer the opportunity to spend time in your chosen specialty for in posts in ST1 and ST2 as part of the training programme, as well as the year as ST3.
We provide a range of educational opportunities through the variety of programmes available within the East Midlands.
The LETB recognises the importance of adult education where GP registrars are given the opportunity to develop so as to allow them to enjoy a lifetime's career in General Practice.
We have a long history of innovation and seek to maximise the opportunities of the changes to Specialty training to provide programmes that prepare our future GPs for practice and lifelong learning.
Within the region we organise training in units called Programmes;
All Programmes have a variety of different training rotations, consisting of different hospital specialties. For further information about the Programme, please click on the links above. Each programme section has its own brochure. Please note, Lincoln and Boston programmes became the Lincolnshire programme in August 2013.
In August 2014 the Northampton and Kettering Programmes became Northamptonshire, and posts rotate through Kettering General Hospital, Northampton General Hospital and Northamptonshire Healthcare and occasionally to University Hospitals of Leicester .
We provide a range of educational opportunities through the variety of programmes available within the East Midlands. As part of the GP Training Programme, you may be required to rotate to placements in the same Trust or in different Trusts, and GP Training Practices within different GP Training Programme areas throughout the East Midlands region.
