Posts in Round 1 Re-advert - Important Notice for Applicants

We have been working to improve the quality of General Practice training in Scotland and  have reduced the number of 4 year programmes and remodelled these into 3 year programmes that include new posts that will enhance General Practice training. These changes affect the 4 year programmes advertised in the West of Scotland. If you have already preferenced any of these you should go into Oriel and re visit your choices and amend your preferences accordingly.
