New jolly trainee

I’m a new ST1 listening since I started in August and have now gone through the lot. Laughing out loud at the podcast, the guys are really funny and the content is really useful and interesting. Making my drives to my work and on calls more enjoyable!!

Fantastic

3 inspiring GP trainees highlighting the reward of being a GP. Lighthearted and easy to listen to, it’s the perfect format for both trainees and qualified GP’s to be reminded what makes the job so special!

AshleighMartin ,

Good for non-trainees too!

It’s a few years since I was a GP trainee but this podcast is new, full of enthusiasm and lots of fun - a great reminder that GP is like that too...most of the time!! Keep up the good work, looking forward to the next one to inspire the current and future generations of GPs!!
