Applications are now open for a fully-funded place on this year’s ‘Next Generation GP’ in Yorkshire starting in February 2021, a programme seeking to inspire emerging future leaders in General Practice.
The core of the programme will consist of six evening events held remotely via zoom once a month, starting in February 2021.
After a challenging year in General Practice and the health system as a whole excellent leadership is more important than ever. In the face of unprecedented pressure the landscape of the NHS is changing rapidly, and the centre of gravity is moving rapidly towards primary care. This represents an exciting opportunity for new GPs to be involved in improving frontline services for patients.
That said, with the largest curriculum and the shortest time to learn it all, many of us start out without a clear understanding of the system we'll be working in, the changes being planned around us, or the tools to lead change effectively. Our belief that the success of any sustainable change in the NHS will be based on the strength of the network of people behind it. This was the driving force behind the creation of this programme.
Participants will benefit from the unique opportunity to engage with, and ask questions of some of the foremost leaders in UK general practice and beyond.
Each event will be an interview, themed workshop, talk or facilitated group work session addressing specific leadership challenges. Information on the monthly events can be found on our event calendar.
Please note, as the programme is fully funded, applicants must be able to commit to attending 4 of the 6 events.
Next Generation GP is for GP trainees and early career GPs (first 5-7 years) with an interest in health policy and the wider NHS.
