Locum GP D
Having qualified in Aug, and having worked since as a locum I thought the whole training process was too long - or perhaps not efficient. The most useful aspect of training was specialty clinics and teaching from specialists (e.g. as ENT where I ran an emergency clinic). Not as a dogsbody on wards. The whole training needs to be rethought, the 'hospital' roles should be placing us in OPD not wards, spend time in MSK practice etc. 2ww clinics, gynae clinics. This would improve knowledge, improve relations with secondary care and actually provide some experience that is applicable to General Practice. I think the GPR year/s if extended should involve rotating practices in different areas, as for me I got used to chronic disease in my GPR year (elderly white working class demographic) but had very little exposure to the young or women's health, something that hinders me a little now.
