What is happening nationally to support GPs?


Five Year Forward View – NHS England GP Retention Scheme

NHS England is continuing to invest in encouraging GPs who would otherwise leave the profession to stay in clinical general practice. The GP Retention Scheme replaces the Retained Doctors Scheme 2016 and delivers a number of improvements. The GP Retention Scheme was launched on the 1st April and replaces the Retained Doctors Scheme 2016.  

The GP Retention Scheme is a package of financial and educational support to help doctors, who might otherwise leave the profession, remain in clinical general practice.

Thinking of returning to general practice?

If you’ve taken a break from NHS general practice there is a direct route back through the GP Induction and Refresher (I&R) Scheme. The scheme provides a safe supported route for qualified GPs to return to NHS general practice in England after taking a break of two years or more.
