Improving recruitment into general practice
We have been working with partners to encourage more trainee doctors to think about becoming a GP. The campaign There’s nothing general about general practice has the backing of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the British Medical Association (BMA) GPs committee and NHS England.
The campaign seeks to inspire and inform young medics about a career in general practice as they make their decision about which specialty training to apply for. A team of qualified GPs have been recruited as ambassadors to talk about their experience of training, working in general practice and provide first-hand advice to those applying this year.

Improving breadth of training
Pre-CCT fellowships are intended to provide further opportunities in areas not included in the standard GP curriculum. Training places are subject to local availability. They are not an extension to standard GP training but provide additional experience and qualifications in for example, academic general practice, leadership, education, commissioning or new models of care such as frail elderly or urgent care. Please email GP Recruitment team for further information.
