GP practices on the scheme receive 1st 6m GP Trainees (ST1) and final 12m GP Trainees (ST3) in rotation.
Practice placements are paired in terms of distance and travelling time to even out travelling time and fuel costs for trainees as far as it is possible.
Practice Pairs are allocated according to preference, with first preferences going to the highest ranked trainees from the selection and assessment process
Occasionally specific practices will become unavailable, as occasionally practices are unable to host trainees. Conversely, practices can occasionally take extra trainees.
