  1. Just going home now after a home visit to a 91-year-old Pakistani women. When I arrived, I was greeted by the family she lives with – very warm and loving. In the last third of the consultation the 91-year-old Pakistani woman expressed in Punjabi, whilst crying, “Doctor, when will my time come? I’m ready.” It struck me how profound and moving our role as GPs is, as people entrust us with the poignant narratives of their lives, revealing thoughts they seldom share even with their closest family members. General Practice is a vocation. I love my job

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).
