Key Stakeholders

Health Service Executive (HSE)

There was an expressed desire by the Department of Health and Children to increase GP training in Ireland and there has been a steady increase in the number of GP training schemes catering for the specialist training of doctors for a future in general practice. The programmes are currently funded by the HSE. All budgetary and financial aspects of the South West GP training programme are managed by the Primary Care Unit (PCU) in Cork.

The Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP)

The Irish College General Practitioners (ICGP) is the professional body for general practice in Ireland. The College was founded in 1984 and is based in Lincoln Place, Dublin 2. The College's primary aim is to serve the patient and the general practitioner by encouraging and maintaining the highest standards of general medical practice. It is the representative organisation on education, training and standards in general practice. The College is the recognised body for the accreditation of specialist training in general practice in Ireland and is recognised by the Medical Council as the representative academic body for the specialty of general practice. At an international level the College is a member of the World Organisation of National Colleges and Academies and Academic Associations of General Practice (WONCA). The ICGP and the HSE are currently undertaking a review of the organisation and structure of General Practice Training in Ireland.
