Welcome to North Cumbria GP Training
North Cumbria GP Training Programme is newly established from 1st February 2017, resulting from the merger of the two smaller, but long established and successful programmes of East Cumbria and West Lakes.
We are an innovative and flexible training programme, offering each Post Graduate Doctor in Training a tailor made three year rotation. Our close-knit GP Training Programme team and our excellent GP Trainers, offer comprehensive educational and pastoral support throughout the 3 years of training and beyond. We are proud of our philosophy of making this support individual to each person's needs.
We are located close to the heart of the North West Lake District, with Training Practices in both rural and urban locations. We have two bases for Hospital posts and Regional teaching, one in Carlisle and one in Whitehaven. Find out more about living and working in North Cumbria.
We are part of the Targeted Enhanced Recruitment Scheme. Please see the National recruitment Website for details
