Doncaster GP Training


Note that training has been severely affected by Covid 19


However, training is slowly resuming now.

Current HEE advice is that ALL educational time for those in General Practice should now resume in the timetable.

HDRC training will be resumed in June via Zoom or online learning etc.

We can’t use the Education Centre until at least until the end of June. We will have to follow isolation guidance after that.

All study leave  can now be taken where possible and trainees should be back in normal place of work.

If the prtactice is unable to facilitate learning beyond debriefs, then the rest can be taken as private study.

We are still running the office for queries and will be sending out regular updates – there will also be a Zoom video Q&A on alternate Tuesdays – Starting next week 20th May we will be doing this at 3pm.

Next week will be for ST3 only,and we will do another for ST1 and 2 when possible due to trust policy on leave.

You will be sent email invites – please make sure you have downloaded the App.

For those returning after time off due to maternity leave or long term sickness or time out of training – you should have had a letter about this from HEE – we have attached it to the files here as well.


We also now have a new website which can be eacessed below - we will be using that site increasingly from now on.




GP training in Doncaster has been going since the 1970s when training was in its infancy and seen as an unnecessary 'fad'. Since then we have advanced in leaps and bounds, increasing from 10 trainees in the late 1980s to over 60 now!




We are based at the Education centre at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. A purpose built training centre for NHS staff with fully equiped rooms for larger and smaller groups. All rooms have internet access, with computers, TV monitors and screens.




Sessions are run at least 40 weeks per year, usually on tuesday afternoons when study leave has been negotiated from both training practices and the hospital posts.


The sessions run from 2 to 5 pm and on selected days we run whole day sessions including mock exams in AKT and CSA and arrange trips to other venues. At the end of the summer and Christmas terms we usually have an awayday and quiz session.
