Training Practice

Lytham Road Surgery is pleased to be a training practice for post graduate doctors who have worked in hospitals and are gaining experience of General practice. GP Registrars and FY2 doctors are all fully qualified doctors and are an essential part of the team.

Here is a brief explanation about the structure of the training of postgraduate doctors within the practice.

FY2 Doctors - Foundation Year 2 Doctors

This is a fairly new scheme whereby newly qualified doctors move onto a programme structure of diagnosis and management of patients not simply in hospitals but also in mental health and general practice. These doctors have had at least 12 months of experience in hospital medicine after qualifying before they come to general practice.

FY2 doctors are placed with a practice for 4 months and will have their own surgery when they see patients. They are supervised by one of our GP Trainers during their experience of working in general practice.

ST1 Doctors

An ST1 is an experienced doctor who has been qualified for a while and has now decided to pursue general practice.

The practice takes on an ST1 in August, and they are based in the practice for a year. They are different from an FY2 doctor as they are not experiencing working in a GP setting; they are actually training to become a GP. As such they will have their own surgeries, but they will still be supervised by their GP trainer. However, as they become more experienced, their surgeries will be the same as any of the GPs working within the practice. They will also attend for home visits.

ST2 Doctors

This is their second year of GP training and will have their own surgeries, but they will still be supervised by their GP trainer. The ST2 doctor will be with the Surgery for four months.

ST3 Doctors

This is their third year of GP training and will have their own surgeries, but they will still be supervised by their GP trainer. The ST3 doctor will be with the Surgery for one year.

Undergraduate Training

The practice has a close involvement with Manchester University Medical School, and occasionally students may be present with the doctor. Patients, however, may exercise their right to see the doctor alone.
