The Sessional GP group is designed for any GP who is not a current GP partner. It aims to provide peer group support and learning in an informal environment. It has a cohort of regular members and we are always happy to receive newly qualified GP’s, or any GP new to the area. The group is the sum of all its members, and we have varied backgrounds, experience and working patterns. Our discussions are educational, confidential, useful for appraisals, and fun.

We usually meet once per month in the evenings, at the Swindon Academy, GWH. During COVID, our meetings have moved to on line platforms. We would love to see you at our next meeting. If you are interested, do get in touch through Kim Taylor –
