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 rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin – my profile, certificates, terms and conditions, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."

Dr Susannah Denny, Berkshire
