The Training Website for Everyone, not just bradford

Welcome to the Bradford VTS – the independent vocational training scheme website for everyone, not just Bradford!   Bradford VTS provides a wealth of free medical resources primarily for GP trainees, their trainers and TPDs.  Our users also include other doctors, Associate Physicians, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Medical Students, Nurse Students and other health professionals – both qualified and in training.  Information is provided freely (as long as you do not use it for a commercial purpose).   Our basic belief is in sharing information and knowledge so that we can learn and develop with each other.  We welcome training resources and educational material from all our users – providing it is copyright free – please do send it via [email protected]
