Geography

Doncaster is located about 20 miles from Sheffield and is popularly referred to by some of its residents as "Donny".  Doncaster has a new international airport and its centre has undergone regeneration including the development of an Education Citycampus, currently the largest education investment of its kind in the UK. Doncaster is also home to one of the oldest and largest racecourses in the country.

Profile

We are fortunate, as a scheme to be large enough to be able to offer a wide diversity of practices. Most of our practices are involved in undergraduate training and some also in pre-registration house officer training.  Practices vary from small market town dispensing to suburban and town centre, and there are opportunities for practice exchange to provide a wide diversity of learning situations.

All out of hours work is covered by GP Co-Operative resulting in sensible out of hours rotas, supervised by experienced principals.

Historically, half of our VTS registrars have stayed on to work in Doncaster and district and our innovative Health Authority and PCTs are keen to see this tradition continue. Salaried posts are often available to bridge the cap between training and full partnership.
