This document sets out the various types of support available to you throughout your career as a general practitioner in England. The guide focuses on support for you – not the practice or the wider system.
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). All GPs are encouraged to liaise with their responsible officer team usually via the appraisal lead to obtain further advice and support on the initiatives and schemes set out in this pack.
