Health Education England working across Kent, Surrey & Sussex (HEEKSS) GP School - Communication Training Resource

Communication skills are an integral part of general practice. This resource pack is designed to equip GP Trainers and Programme Directors with the information and different styles of consultations to be used in one to one or group tutorials with GP Speciality Training Registrars in all stages of their training (ST1, ST2 and ST3).

The video streams should assist discussion about style of consultation with a series of questions to focus GPStRs on appropriate approach to consultation with their patients in hospital or general practice setting.  The Powerpoint slides "Consultation Models" available on the site, provide information and encourage further reading on communication skills. The slides can be used to assist you in tutorials.

Dr Bill Bevington has produced a booklet entitled “Talking with Patients” and has referenced different styles of communication, and  when it is appropriate to use patient-centred, doctors-centred and or complaint/ disease-centred approach. We hope this will encourage you to read about communication skills and apply different models in care of patients.
