The Practice would like to offer their congratulations to Dr Elske Tolkamp, who has recently passed her GP training exams. This is the culmination of years and years of hard work.
Dr Tolkamp completed her third and final year of GP training at Riverside, and we’re delighted to announce that she will now be joining our GP team on a permanent basis.
As a training practice, each year we have an ‘ST3’ join us to complete their final year of GP training. ST3s are fully qualified doctors, who choose undertake the three-year GP training programme after graduating from medical school.
We have several ‘GP trainers’ on our team, who work closely with ST3s during their time with us. This important – but often unseen – work which our GP trainers do contributes to the ongoing national effort to ensure that new GPs continue to enter the workforce, in Scotland and beyond.
We’re sure that our patients – many of whom have been cared for by Dr Tolkamp during her training year – will join us in extending their warmest congratulations to her.
