GP Induction and Refresher Scheme (April 2015)

New national GP Induction and Refresher scheme

A new national GP Induction and Refresher scheme will be launched today and will go live from 1 April 2015.

The new scheme is part of the GP workforce 10 point action plan, launched in January by NHS England, Health Education England, the RCGP and the BMA. The scheme, developed collaboratively between the four organisations, standardises pre-existing regional schemes providing a consistent single point of contact, via the GP National Recruitment Office, to guide doctors through the system.

It will provide an opportunity for GPs who have previously been on the GMC Register and on the NHS England National Performers List (NPL), to return to General Practice after a career break, raising a family or time spent working abroad. It also supports the safe introduction of overseas GPs who have qualified outside the UK and have no previous NHS experience.

Doctors will also be able to apply from overseas, before they either return or come to the UK.

The scheme will offer a bursary of £2,300 per month and participants will be given a supervised placement in general practice. The placements will be tailored to the needs of doctors to ensure they have the confidence and knowledge needed to be a GP.
