Inverness by Night
Groupwork is an integral part of GP training.  Here, a group of our ST1s who started in August 2015 and currently in general practice talk about their experiences of  groupwork.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed the beginning of GP training. The day release sessions have been both helpful and enjoyable. These sessions take part on a Wednesday morning where we chat in small groups of around 5. We organise the sessions ourselves and pick interesting or challenging topics. In the first half we organise a PBSGL module. These modules are specifically designed for GP trainees including cases and references to up to date guidelines. The second half is facilitated by a local GP who has been very approachable with a relaxed manner. This is a fantastic opportunity to discuss difficulties in a safe environment. The peer support is invaluable and comparing and contrasting our practices has been interesting. There is a great camaraderie within the group where we can be honest about our difficulties and feel we are safely supported throughout our training."
