GP training in Scotland offers unrivalled opportunities, and training in all parts of Scotland rates highly in the annual GMC survey.
We value all our trainees and continue to invest in them so that the population of Scotland has access to the best clinical care, from highly trained and motivated doctors, working in the communities in which they trained.
The Scottish Government continues to give priority to the development of primary care as the first and vital contact with patients.
The Primary Care Fund has been in place since June 2015 and continues to provide investment in primary care services across Scotland and across professions. As part of this policy to support primary care, 100 new GP training places were created for February 2017 start with some posts receiving a financial boost to help trainees work outside the main cities and central belt.
