The GP education department for Kent, Surrey and Sussex supports the recruitment and retention of doctors in general practice. It also has an active role in many of the processes that support primary care, in particular continuing professional development.
For more information, including recruitment and training, please visit the general practice education website.
In collaboration with NHS England, Royal College of GPs and the BMA’s GP committee we have produced ‘Building the Workforce – the New Deal for General Practice’, which outlined a series of actions to address immediate issues of GP recruitment. This work is being put into action broadly around a number of key strands:
- Recruit: Improving recruitment into general practice
- Retain: Retaining doctors within general practice
- Return: Supporting those who wish to return to general practice
