​GP Education

Thomas Sydenham Education Centre

The Thomas Sydenham Education Centre is a purpose built facility on the ground floor of East Wing at Dorset County Hospital.

We regularly host educational events for GPs including monthly Grand Rounds, various full and half day lectures and workshops. 

Annually we host the very popular GP Refresher Week. All GPs are welcome to attend our events and the sessions are free to WGPET members.

We provide flexible, innovative education to meet the learning needs of our local GPs.  We have a wealth of experienced presenters including our hospital consultants and other local and national speakers.   If you would like us to cover a particular topic then please let us know; we are keen to be responsive to your needs.

If you have any queries or would like to be booked on to an event then please do email or call me.

If you would like to be added to our GP email list then please let me know which email address you would prefer me to use.

This is a fantastic resource listing all the educational events across Dorset Hampshire and Wiltshire.

Cancellation Policy

We have had to reintroduce a stricter cancellation policy with holding cheques for all events as many people were booking but then not attending the events resulting in very low numbers. This undermines the goodwill from the consultant teams who have reorganised their clinics and theatre lists and leads to frustration and disappointment.  We understand that priorities change but please do let us know if you cannot attend.

Dorset GP Centre website

The GP Centre have developed a website for Dorset GPs; it is full of really useful and up to date information including Events calendars for Dorchester Poole and Bournemouth.
