GP Recruitment


Welcome to GP Recruitment at Health Education England across the North West 

We have a fantastic choice of GP Specialty Training Programmes across the North West.  We can offer programmes in vibrant, busy cities; quiet rural areas; the hustle and bustle of seaside resorts – truly something for everyone.

We have 3 ‘academies’ across HENW – Mersey (from Southport through Liverpool across to the Wirral & into Cheshire), North (including Blackpool, Preston and Lancaster into the Lake District) and South (the cities of Manchester and Salford and surrounding towns each with its own distinctive character).

We delivered the first formal extended training pilot, the first lead employer arrangement for GPSTs and pride ourselves on being at the forefront of training. Each locality GPST programme is distinctive in the range of posts offered and delivery of structured release teaching programmes. The majority of our ‘graduates’ stay in the north west as independent practitioners as there are interesting and challenging opportunities for partnership, salaried posts and locum work in all areas.

So come to HENW – Developing People for Health and Healthcare
