Wednesday Day Release

Your Wednesday day release programme, operates the first and third Wednesdays of each month. You are expected to attend 70% of whole day release teaching during your three years. We expect trainees in GP attachments to attend for whole days and those in hospital posts, to attend as often as they can be released (liaise with your Medical Workforce Officer). The attachment timetables can be found by going to the homepage on this website.

Useful hints

  • The cheapest way for trainees to park, is to buy a ticket from Patient Accounts in the main concourse. These tickets cost £16.00 and allow parking in staff car parks only, for 15 visits. Alternatively, a non-staff ticket allows 14 visits using any car park other than those reserved for staff, and costs £19.00.
