Each is a four month placement, and with a final rotation of general practice, every trainee has the same rotations at Epsom.
The programme consists of a variety of placements in the hospital and in community settings such as:
Hospital placements at Epsom Hospital:
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Medicine- including Geriatrics and Gastroenterology
Psychiatry- may also be based in the community
Our Psychiatry posts are based with the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. This gives you an opportunity to diversify your experiences across a wider range of service providers.

Integrated training posts are based in General Practice but with half of the time spent in a hospital specialism or other area associated with health care. Below are the ITP posts that our programme currently offers:

General Practice Placements
There are currently 13 training practices with a varying number of trainers per practice. Once a trainee has their rotation confirmed, an Educational Supervisor is assigned to them who will remain so throughout their GP training.
All practices are different and vary in the demographics of the population, employment, deprivation and the ranges of life expectancy. The majority of our practices are town-based however some are semi-rural.
Many practices are purpose built health centres, but a few old converted buildings remain.
The culture and philosophy of each practice will be fundamentally different. Practices will have patient participation groups which range from highly active and involved teams to virtual groups.
