Induction Book - free for trainers and their trainees

TRAINERS – You can download and adapt this generic induction handbook

Please read this generic induction handbook – there’s information in it that you will find helpful.  At our practice, we get this induction handbook printed off by one of the online printing services and get it professionally bound – details below.  New trainees tell us that they have never had something so professional looking from other practices and that it makes them feel like they are “special”.   We get them to bring it to every day of induction so we can follow it through like a workbook.    It works well – trainees love it and it keeps us (the trainers) effortlessly on track.  Try it.

How are you feeling?

Are you feeling worried?  Apprehensive?  A little scared?   Don’t know what you have signed up for?

Don’t worry!  These are perfectly normal feelings most GP trainees experience when they start a GP scheme.   Yes, there is an awful lot to cover, but remember – YOU HAVE LOTS OF TIME TOO!!!   So, instead of feeling a little apprehensive, see you if you can turn that emotion into an exciting feeling – because you’ll be learning lots of new and wonderful things!
