The universal GP Training website for everyone, not just Bradford.   Created in 2002 by Dr Ramesh Mehay


Did you know that most internet browser giants are secretly collecting stuff about you.  And you don’t know what they do with that information or where it goes.  You might not even be bothered – but think for a moment about it.  Free will is our ability to make choices unconstrained by certain factors.   But imagine a world where all sorts of organisations know everything about you, your likely habits and so on and the use of that to subtly influence your choices in the world without you knowing.  This is already happening – do a search these days and see how many products come up that ‘might interest you’  (based on covert surveillance of your past internet behaviour).  You won’t have asked for that information but it is presented to you because they know it will influence you and that you’re likely to be ‘bought in’.  This isn’t free will any more – it’s a world that is being monopolised by giants who then liaise with other giants (or semi giants) to get what they want from you.

I think it was Mark Zuckerberg (the founder of Facebook) who once said ‘You are the product we sell’.  Take note of his words.  There is NO such thing as a free lunch.  If you are being given something for free, it’s because YOU ARE THE PRODUCT THAT IS BEING SOLD.     If you would like a safe and reliable browser that is just as good the Giants (and with less spam), try something like DuckDuckGo:

And on a related note, watch the film ‘Minority Report’, it will open your eyes to the possibility of a future dystopia (an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one.)

You still have the power to choose your own destiny. Choose who don’t monitor what you are doing.

Bradford VTS was created by Dr. Ramesh Mehay, a Programme Director for Bradford GP Training Scheme back in 2001. Over the years, it has seen many permutations.  At the time, there were very few resources for GP trainees and their trainers so Bradford decided to create one FOR EVERYONE. 

So, we see Bradford VTS as  the INDEPENDENT vocational training scheme website providing a wealth of free medical resources for GP trainees, their trainers and TPDs everywhere and anywhere.  We also welcome other health professionals – as we know the site is used by both those qualified and in training – such as Associate Physicians, ANPs, Medical & Nursing Students. 

Our fundamental belief is to openly and freely share knowledge to help learn and develop with each other.  Feel free to use the information – as long as it is not for a commercial purpose.   

We have a wealth of downloadable resources and we also welcome copyright-free educational material from all our users to help build our rich resource (send to

Our sections on (medical) COMMUNICATION SKILLS and (medical) TEACHING & LEARNING are perhaps the best and most comprehensive on the world wide web (see white-on-black menu header section on the homepage).
