Welcome to the GP Programme Directors page!
The GP Programme Directors (formerly known as VTS course organisers) are tasked with ensuring that individual training programmes are sufficiently broad and balanced to meet the requirements for a certificate of completion of training (CCT). They will oversee delivery of GP curriculum in hospital posts and co-ordinate educational programmes for trainees.

Safeguarding children policy
As GP Specialty Training Registrars work with children and young people, GP Trainers are required to ensure that GPStRs have maintained their knowledge and competencies in keeping children safe from harm. We expect all GPStRs will have completed the safeguarding children training (level 2) annually. This policy would need to be followed accordingly.
