Communication Skills Training in ST2

During the second year of training Trainees attend Crompton Health Centre for a series of Communication Skills sessions.

These take place during the ‘GP Plus’ post placement and run along side the ST2 Education sessions at the education centre. The sessions are arranged and delivered by Dr Julian Tomkinson juliantomkinson@nhs.net

In non-pandemic times, sessions are at Crompton Health Centre and start at 2pm. Until further notice, all sessions will be held via Zoom.

If you are an ST2 in a GP or GP+ post, you should attend these sessions. The course is repeated each year so that everyone can attend.
