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).
National GP Retention Schemes
Health Education England (HEE) provide joint financial and educational support for GPs, who might otherwise leave the profession, remain in General Practice.
The GP Retention Scheme replaced the Retained Doctors Scheme 2016.
