Practice News & Notices
FY2 Doctor -
Following recent modernisation of the training and career structure of doctors in the NHS, the first two years after qualifying as doctors are now known as Foundation Year 1 (FY1) and Foundation Year 2 (FY2). One of the changes introduced as part of this modernisation is the idea that as many doctors as possible should experience a period of time in general practice regardless of their eventual chosen career in medicine. We in general practice support this wholeheartedly and are convinced that, regardless of the specialty they eventually choose, all doctors will benefit from an insight into the workings of general practice. Therefore, our practice will accommodate FY2 doctors for periods of four months as part of their training. They work closely with us and are under supervision throughout their time with us. We are sure that this arrangement will benefit patient care in the future.
