Training Practice

We have been a training practice for many years. This essentially means that Dove Valley Practice Doctors have undergone specialist training in medical education, and that the practice is a high quality setting in which this training can take place. The Doctors as well as the practice itself are periodically inspected by the Yorkshire and Humber Deanery to check we are up to the rigorous standards required of training practices.

The practice trains junior doctors who are on the Barnsley Vocational Training Scheme. This is a three-year course which doctors can embark on after two years in (Foundation) hospital jobs. It constitutes 18 months in General Practice and 18 months in hospital specialities like paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology and psychiatry.

There are many benefits to being a training practice both for the staff and you as the patients.

For patients it means:

  • You are assured of the highest quality clinical care because of the regular and ongoing need to keep up to date with the most current practices and evidence based medicine.
  • Our administration and organisation is effective, as all aspects of the practice are inspected.
  • There are more appointments offered because of the availability of registrars (trainee GPs).

For staff it means:

  • Our professional development is always challenged by new, young minds.
  • The trainees contribute greatly to the day to day running of the practice.
  • We have employed/retrained several doctors who came to us as registrars.
