Competition ratios can be misleading. Our advice therefore is that you make your HEE Local Office / deanery choices based on where you see yourself working for the next 3 years. If you really don’t know which HEE Local Offices / deaneries to choose, we suggest that you do some research into the type of programmes offered at each HEE Local Office / deanery, the geographical areas covered by each HEE Local Office / deanery, the main Trusts in each of those areas, transport links to home, and so on. Bear in mind that if successful, you will be committing to that area for the next 3 years. You can also access individual HEE Local Office / deanery and programme profiles from the left hand side and from there, you can access individual HEE Local Office / deanery web sites for even more information.
You may find the following information from previous recruitment rounds helpful. We strongly suggest that you also read the Applicant Guide so that you understand how the GP assessment and selection process works.
