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....
