New Guidance for GP trainees and trainers

Please note that there is a new guidance on the BMA's website called 'Guide to a session for GP trainees and trainers'.

This guidance note has been drafted to replace the previous "Guide to a Session" (January 2009) and has been produced by the GP trainees subcommittee in conjunction with COGPED.
