Preparing to Return to General Practice in a post Covid World

This half day virtual simulation workshop has been fully funded by Health Education England North West London as part of the support offered to doctors who have taken time out of general practice.

It is recognised that returning to work during a global pandemic poses extraordinary challenges not least the need to embrace the changes of remote working.

It is aimed to be a learning experience rather than an assessment to help you gain confidence about your return to work. Simulation training aims to provide an opportunity to practice your skills in a safe, supported environment, and will involve remote assessment of patients through video and telephone consultations with role play actors.

This workshop will be interactive and uses a range of blended learning techniques to enable you to engage. The schedule also includes breaks and break out sessions.

There will also be opportunity to reflect on our personal resilience and wellbeing and how to invest in these.

In order to best meet your learning needs, the form contains some questions which will help us plan the day. Please answer as thoughtfully as you can.

Please note: This workshop is fully funded by Health Education as part of Supported Return to Training (SRTT) and costs over £1500 to run. In registering for this event we are asking for your commitment as non-attendance negatively impacts the group dynamic for others, as well as the cost implications. For this reason we ask for a refundable deposit of £20 which will be returned to you after your attendance at the workshop.

Your deposit will be refunded to everyone who attended the event.

The Zoom link to the event will be circulated 1 week before the event, to those who registered for the event.

NHS England GP support pack

GPs are a valued and vital part of the NHS team. Regardless of where you are on your career path – whether you are straight out of training, in your mid-career or nearing retirement – support is available to help you to continue in practice and develop a rewarding and sustainable career in general practice.

Whether you need career-planning advice, help exploring portfolio career options, assistance with indemnity or pension questions, or just the support of understanding colleagues who’ve ‘been there,’ help is available.

This guide is intended to signpost GPs to support which is offered by NHS England and other key partners such as the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the British Medical Association (BMA).
