Welcome to Guy's and St. Thomas' GP VTS
We are a fun, versatile & innovative 3 year vocational training scheme (VTS). Our hospital posts revolve around Guys & St Thomas NHS hospitals as well as within community mental health clinics in South East London. Unique community experience within hospital posts is further provided by family planning, community paediatric and GUM clinics. In addition, some trainees spend 6 months in a Homeless and Rootless post. Here half of your week is spent in general practice, the other half you see patients in homeless hostels/substance misuse centres and learn how to safely manage and prescribe for people with addiction to drugs and alcohol.
Our training practices are scattered around Southwark & Lambeth. This diverse and vibrant area provides excellent learning opportunities for a GP trainee. The variance of practices is marked, from large practices placed in high socioeconomic areas with excellent public transport to others being much less so and smaller. Indeed many surgeries have a practice population that covers a multitude of patient groups to enhance the educational experience. Details of each post and training practice can be found within this website.
The administrator for the VTS is Ava and she can be contacted for further questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
