Barnsley VTS

We are a friendly GP training scheme with a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. We meet for our half day teaching on a Wednesday afternoon at Thurgoland Surgery (unless specified otherwise). These teaching sessions cover a variety of topics to help you during your training posts and to support you with the exams that you will need to pass to progress through your training.

We run a one day conference every year the focus of which changes from year to year.  This is a chance to get to know your colleagues in a more relaxed setting at the same time as continuing to advance your learning.

Our GP training scheme is lucky enough to have a team of dedicated and motivated training programme directors (TPDs) and Trainers who will do all they can to guide and support you through your training. A sense of humour is an essential component of being a trainer or trainee on our scheme, you have been warned!

General practice is a great career full of wonderful experiences, personalities and challenges. We hope that you feel at home on the GP training scheme and enjoy your time with us.
