GP Career Plus pilot areas published

NHS England has announced 11 areas across the country that will pilot a new scheme to keep hold of the vital skills and experience of GPs on the verge of leaving.

GP Career Plus scheme has been developed with the Royal College of General Practitioners, British Medical Association and Health Education England. A 12-month pilot will look to recruit around 80 GPs at risk of leaving the profession. The GPs will be recruited into a general practice pool in each area that works across that health system and could provide clinical cover for sickness and holidays, carry out home visits as well a range of other support. The pools are expected to go live this summer and if the model is proved to be successful, may be advocated for use by CCGs or providers to help support more GP retention.

More information on the GP Career Plus and pilot areas is available at: https://www.england.nhs.uk/gp/gpfv/workforce/gp-career-plus/
