Sessions are on Wednesday, 1pm-3pm in the Education Centre.


The GP Training Scheme in Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Furness General Hospital runs over 3 years. The first 2 years (ST 1 & 2) are in secondary care in 4 different hospital posts, one of which is a GP + Post (part GP/part specialty). The 3rd year (ST3) is spent in general practice.

The tracks are allocated by the Programme Directors at each site. Previous experience and personal preferences are taken into account when allocating tracks. However, it is not always possible for everyone to have a track of all their first choice posts.

FGH tracks: There are 12 tracks available in FGH which include posts in:

  • Paediatrics
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  • Psychiatry
  • Medicine
  • Accident and Emergency
  • Sexual Health
  • Primary Care Network
  • FGH GP + Posts (60% GP & 40% Specialty): are available in Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynae, Accident & Emergency, Primary care network, sexual health and Medicine.

The posts are based at Furness General Hospital, Dane Garth Mental Health unit and general practices throughout the Furness area.
