Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get access to your old GP training newsletters?

All subscribers will receive the most up-to-date version of the newsletter. Previous newsletters will be unavailable for new registrations. We will, however, aim to build an archive of old newsletters soon and introduce this to our community.

Are you able to publish more newsletters?

We aim to produce a high-quality newsletter that is entirely relevant to primary care. To do so, we have limited ourselves to a fortnightly newsletter. If we are able to grow this community of trainees, we will endeavour to produce bi or tri-weekly newsletters!

How closely are the GP training newsletter and AKT courses aligned?

Our strategy at WellMedic is to build knowledge directly from primary guidance. We demonstrate this approach in all of our courses, most notably during our mock course, as each question is followed by a video description explaining each answer and how we developed the question from primary guidance.

Will I benefit from the GP training newsletter as a GPST1?

As a GPST1, our GP training newsletter is a great introduction to the nuances of primary care and how we utilise primary guidelines. As you become more experienced, you will build the skill of jumping between guidelines and tailoring the care you provide. 

Appreciating uncertainty and ambiguity is central to primary care. This is tested within the AKT, and by using our newsletter early, you will have a jump start on your AKT preparation.

Will I benefit from the GP training newsletter as a GPST2?

We strongly encourage all GPST2 trainees to consider taking the MRCGP AKT during your ST2 year. One-third of our newsletter will be dedicated to the AKT exam and how you can apply our fortnightly theme to your revision.

Additionally, you will continue to benefit from our portfolio-based support as well as familiarising yourself with the upcoming SCA exam during your ST3.

Will I benefit from the GP training newsletter as a GPST3?

Our answers to the GPST1 and GPST2 questions remain relevant here. At this stage of your training, it depends on how close you are to completing training. All trainees at GPST3 should be thinking about the SCA early into their training year. One-third of our newsletter is dedicated to the SCA.

Additionally, some trainees will have the AKT outstanding, and all trainees will meet their curriculum capabilities in a primary care placement. Our newsletter will support all aspects of your GPST3 training year.

GP TRAINEE PORTFOLIOExample clinical case reviews for GP trainees. GP trainee portfolio reflection guide.

Clinical case reviews will account for most of your fourteen fish GP trainee portfolio entries. This is partly due to the yearly requirement of completing at least thirty-six clinical case reviews.

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE TEST (AKT)Summarising the BNF – yes or no? The WellMedic BNF summary guide!

Have you considered summarising the BNF for your MRCGP AKT revision? The general advice from most GP supervisors would be to summarise the BNF, either alone or within a small group. If you’ve spent any time around the fourteen fish communities, you will see that GP trainees are often asking each other for their BNF notes.

GP TRAINEE PORTFOLIOCommon FourteenFish portfolio challenges encountered by GP trainees.

The FourteenFish GP trainee portfolio is among the most intuitive and easy-to-use portals I’ve encountered! If you’re slightly ancient like me, you would have had the pleasure of using the old RCGP GP trainee portfolio, which was nightmarish!
