New to Practice Fellowship - CPD & Peer Support

Programme for monthly CPD

Our CPD sessions are currently being held virtually. Topics are based on the national guidance for New to Practice Fellowships and on feedback and suggestions from fellows themselves. The teaching will generally be held on Tuesdays alternating monthly between an afternoon session and an evening session to aim to give flexibility for the largest number of fellows to attend. Occasionally the day of the week might need to change to accommodate a specific speaker.

Peer Support

Whether you’ve trained locally or have just moved to the area, feeling connected to other early career GPs is really important. By participating in the fellowship and attending our CPD meetings you will already be building these relationships. We have a New to Practice Fellows WhatsApp group which is a great way to keep in touch and communicate. If you are a fellow and are not already a member then please contact info@phoenixprogramme.co.uk for joining details.

As you come towards the end of the fellowship we will help those interested to form an independent action learning set in order to continue to support each other beyond those first two years.
