A massive thank you to Carmel Murphy-Elliott who organised and led a wonderful event for the trainees' wellbeing session. Held at Hulme's Garden Community centre, our trainees were shown the '5 aspects of wellbeing'. A system that provides the tools and strategies to prevent burnout (while also mindfully acknowledging the signs of burnout before it happens).

GM Deprivation GPST has started! (Feb 2019)
We have seen the first cohort of ST trainees beginning their journey with us on the GM Deprivation ST Programme. It has been exciting meeting them, hearing their hopes and dreams for their training and General Practice careers.
Since we have started, there has been some excellent teaching. We have heard from Dr Austin O’Carroll, who leads the pioneering North Dublin GPST programme, on stigma; and Dr Ruth Thompson, from Urban Village Medical Practice, on Adverse Childhood Events.
We have also covered topics such as respiratory medicine, cardiovascular medicine and how to navigate the portfolio. It has been great to hear from some experts in their fields, and to learn together.
We are looking forward to the term ahead, getting to know each other better and continuing to learn and develop as GP trainees.
