Are you a newly qualified GP or GPN?

The General Practice Fellowship programme is a two-year programme of support, available to all newly-qualified GPs and nurses working substantively in general practice, with an explicit focus on working within and across a Primary Care Network (PCN).


It offers you:

  • Access to a funded GP mentor
  • Funded CPD opportunities of one session per week (pro rata)
  • A chance to experience rotational placements within or across PCNs
  • The programme offers you support with:
  • PCN portfolio opportunities and learning and development post-registration
  • Encouragement to take up substantive roles
  • Understanding the context you are working in to become embedded in your PCN

The programme is a national commitment announced in the NHS Long Term Plan, and restated in the February 2020 ‘Update to the GP Contract agreement 2020/21–2023/24’.
