Community placements

The resources below are offered to support the delivery of community placements for GP trainees.

The placements allow trainees to step outside the consulting room and get to know the community they are working in. This is in keeping with the ‘community orientation’ competency of the RCGP curriculum.

Community placements also allow trainees to learn more about the importance of social prescribing and the role of community and voluntary organisations (the third sector) in supporting patients and communities.
