Wessex AIT Subcommittee

The Wessex AiT Subcommittee was created to give GP trainees the opportunity to voice their opinions on the development of policy and future initiatives in relation to their GP training and RCGP membership.


It is run ‘by trainees, for trainees’. It aims to provide support through identifying and solving problems that may arise and to be an advocate for trainees in liaising with the Deanery and Royal College. The sort of issues that arise can be anything from training posts to exam queries. If you would like to contact the committee please email:  wessexait@googlemail.com

For enquires about revision website subscriptions offered to Wessex trainees please email wessexpassmedicine@gmail.com, these are organised by a member of the committee who volunteers their time.
