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.
We’re the independent not-for-profit support organisation run by and for any GP in the UK working as a locum or salaried GP. Please support our work by joining us as a full member, from only £11 per month, and includes full use of LocumDeck.
