You'd think with GP recruitment and retention as it is at the moment that NHS England would be a little more slick in processing new applicants to its performers lists. But judging from comments from members about their Performers List experiences, you'd be wrong.
As one of our commentators said "The biggest issue is the inaccurate, poorly drafted and misleading application form."
So today, we've published a new Frequently Asked Question for our members on how to speed up the process, circumventing some or all of the subsequent delays, and even producing a covering letter template to really help get things moving, and getting more GPs into do surgeries and seeing patients.
After nine painful weeks of going through the process of joining the Performer's list, NASGP member Mark de Kretser gives a helpful rundown of how to get through the application process. Mark provides some hints and tips, many of which we hope will avoid you having to discover the same many weeks into your application.
