Supporting you in your First 5 years of Practice
Welcome to Derbyshire!
If you are just about to qualify as a GP in Derbyshire or have recently qualified as a GP within the past 5 years and live or work in Derbyshire, then you’ve come to the right place! We are a growing community of local GPs, joining each other in getting our CPD and making connections and supporting each other.
First 5 Derbyshire is run voluntarily by Eilise Brogan, and Henna Taimoor. They are both GPs in Derbyshire and very much enjoy being part of this group. They organise monthly education sessions which include guest speakers.
First 5 welcome anyone to join our group and get involved in any capacity! Giving ideas for sessions, or of speakers, or of being speakers themselves!

The first year of being a GP can on occasions be a little puzzling. We have grouped together some short podcasts to support your transition.
