New GP retention scheme from NHS England

New GP retention scheme from NHS England

If you’re currently on  a performers list but seriously considering leaving general practice, but a part-time job with good flexibility and educational support would tempt you to stay as a GP, then NHS England’s new GP retention scheme may be right up your street.

Part of NHS England’s General Practice Forward View, it’s quite clear that it’s not intended as a measure to support GPs in remediation, unless that’s due to health reasons, and there does appear to be a strong emphasis on education and support, so all-in-all it looks as if it has all the trappings for a well balanced scheme.

Of course, the scheme comes with an annual assessment and various other hoops, but will be a welcome new option for many GPs in the current climate.

 

 

"I am a newly qualified sessional GP. I am thankful to you and your team for the splendid work you do for all of us. LocumDeck is the only platform that allows GPs to be in control and I am glad I have been a member of NASGP since my trainee days."

Dr Karthik Krishna
