Who are we?

Our programme covers the full RCGP curriculum with emphasis on health issues suffered in areas of concentrated disadvantage. We are part of the Health Equity Focused Training (HEFT) delivered by Health Education England (HEE).

Trainees learn trauma-informed practice, psychological interventions and an understanding of the links between health and financial stress. Because of the high levels of pathology, trainees rapidly gain broad ranging experience and knowledge to make confident decisions in partnership with their patients.


We hope trainees can become champions for social change within their local communities and take a stand against health inequalities.
