Bridges Programmes supports doctors, who have English as a second language, retrain to become registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and to work in National Health Service (NHS) Scotland.

We offer a long-term package of support. This includes:

This contains all training required for GMC registration, including: your journey there and what you need to do and have; modules for PLABs 1 and 2, and medical English modules.

(We also provide face to face training, delivered at The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. Due to COVID restrictions this is suspended until further notice).
