Virtual Primary Care (VPC) is an innovative, general practice based educational resource offering fly on the wall access to 150 diverse, real life primary care consultations recorded in Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol and London. Every consultation has been tagged for clinical and educational content and is accompanied by a brief summary, associated learning points, references and suggested student activities.

Developed by the Medical Schools Council and the Society of Academic Primary Care Heads of GP Teaching Group, VPC has been designed to provide vital support to medical students training in a changed primary care environment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The resource uses video consultations provided by the award winning TV production company Knickerbockerglory, producers of the Channel 5 television series GPs: Behind Closed Doors.

VPC is available to all UK medical schools as part of their membership of the Medical Schools Council. For licensing and security reasons, VPC is not in the public domain but available only to member medical schools.
