Combine chic city style with picturesque countryside - Leicestershire is packed with fantastic contradictions just waiting for you to explore.

Ideally located within the 'Golden triangle' of the M1, M69 and M6 motorways Leicester is easily accessible.

With pretty villages steeped in history, rolling landscapes and beautiful market towns, Leicestershire is a county packed with historical facts and fiction.

Find yourself in an exciting, diverse and multi-cultural city with awe-inspiring architecture, vibrant festivals and world-class performing arts Leicester, the official Curry Capital of Britain is a city full of discovery for all the family.

Leicestershire boasts a thriving city and the surrounding countryside is considered a bonus to being part of the Leicester based programmes.

The Leicestershire area is split down in to: Leicester City Programme, East Leicester Programme, North Leicester Programme, South Leicester Programme and West Leicester Programme, each programme has a dedicated Programme Director.

The variety of opportunity and environment for training ensures Leicester continues to attract doctors with diverse interests and experience. We have a history of innovation in our half-day release provision having developed and evaluated a curriculum rather than a rigid timetable. We use simulation in training as a matter of course.

Throughout Leicestershire programmes we incorporate a diverse range of practices - from single handed doctors to large multiple trainer practices. The practices range from older established practices (and trainers) to the newer practices, offering a variety of experiences in both suburban and rural areas.

All our programmes through Leicestershire are friendly training programmes with a high standard of teaching designed to meet a GPStR's needs, with close ties to the Kettering and Northampton Programme you will train with GPStR's from the 3 programmes.
