MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS 2013/2014
Membership entitles doctors to attend as many WGPET underwritten events as they wish. The majority of meetings and courses arranged by GP Tutors and their Associates fall within this category.
Events underwritten by WGPET will carry a GP Tutor endorsement and members will receive summaries of events attended each year.
The Trust also purchases a number of places on independent courses within its area so that members can attend these without cost.
The Trust will also susidise the cost of members attending meetings organised by RCGP Wessex Faculty resulting in WGPET members being able to attend these meetings at a reduced cost.
Members may also claim re-imbursement of part of the educational costs when attending "out of area" events, subject to certain limits. For the year 2013/2014 members can claim up to £120.00 representing 75% of the basic subscription.
