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 was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
