General Practice (GP) Location and Travel Allowances
In most cases trainees will be allocated to a practice within the area served by their current trust. However, although uncommon, in some cases there may be a need for them to be placed in another trust’s area. Some trust areas do cover a wide geographic footprint and trainees will be expected to travel a reasonable distance from home or the trust to the placement.
During the trainees’ time in GP it is not essential for them to do any out of hours working, although they may well be asked to carry out home visits. In most cases this will be alongside the clinical supervisor.
There are no travel allowances for any time spent in GP. This includes travel to and from the practice from home or the trust regardless of where the practice is located.
