The GM GP Fellowship scheme

If you are within 12 months of qualifying your CCT then you could benefit from the GMTH NHSE GP Fellowship Programme, a fantastic opportunity offering paid CPD sessions of £7,200 per year (pro rata). 

Supporting all those eligible, newly qualified GPs that are in substantive, salaried or partner positions within Greater Manchester, the GP Fellowship is a 2 year programme of support aimed at welcoming GPs into general practice and their Primary Care Network and allowing for both personal and professional growth.

Throughout the 2 years you will receive monthly 1 hour mentorship from an experienced GP, connection with a peer network, learning and development podcasts and masterclasses, additional coaching, and portfolio development opportunities all designed to support your transition from a GPST to a GP – added to all that, there are no essays and no examinations at the end.

The GM GPN Fellowship scheme

The Greater Manchester General Practice Nurse (GPN) fellowships will offer one session per week (pro rota) protected learning time over 2 years. 

This will support induction into practice, primary care network (PCN) and sustainability and transformation partnership (STP). You will have a supervisor for the 2 years as well as access to peer support group and coaching. You will be given the opportunity to develop portfolio working with your PCN as well as a learning and development programme to help you develop your skills as a GPN.

You can apply to start a fellowship within the first 12 months of completing your nurse training. You would need to hold a substantive salaried or Partner role, delivering GMS services.

Greater Manchester Training Hub also have a Greater Manchester preceptorship programme for those nurses new to primary care.
