Return to Work Scheme

We all recognise that feeling of being a little rusty after returning to work after a holiday but often we know where to look or who to ask if not sure of something. The challenges of returning to work after a career break are far greater. The reasons for being off can vary greatly and are often not voluntary, time out can be extensive and upon return there may be additional priorities, such as recovering from illness or caring for others. At the Phoenix Programme Return to Work team, we recognise the challenges for GPs returning to work are unique and we are here to support you in this process.

What we offer:

  • Funded Red Whale GP Update Course to keep GPs updated on clinical knowledge while off work.
  • Funded Shapes Toolkit Coaching Package to help build confidence for GPs to return to the workplace.
  • GP Return to Work Survival Series – a free 3-4 session series covering all aspects of return to work and career planning and also offers an opportunity for networking and peer support.
  • Notts New Mums WhatsApp Group – a peer support group discussing common queries while off or returning from maternity leave.
  • ‘Return to Work’ section of the Phoenix Programme website – offering a wealth of resources pre, during and post career break e.g. Induction pointers, KIT day guidance, finances for GP parents and many more.

There is a wealth of information and support out there to help you transition back to work smoothly and help rekindle your career enthusiasm. If you have any further queries or comments please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@phoenixprogramme.co.uk.
