GP Special Interests

The Special Interests scheme provides funding for diploma places to expand the number of GPs with specialist interests in areas aligned to the ICS priorities.

Key objectives

  • Increased pool of GPs with special interests in priority areas;
  • GPs retained through development of broader portfolio and wider system benefits across the ICS, aligned to the NHS Future Plan and planning guidance for transformation in primary care.

The monies will be used to fund/part fund diploma places to expand the number of GPwSI in areas aligned to the ICS priorities:

  • Dermatology
  • Frailty
  • Urgent and Emergency care
  • ENT
  • Gynae
  • Cardiology
  • Respiratory
  • General surgery
  • Urology
  • Endocrinology/Diabetes
  • Gastroenterology

There will be an 18-month commitment to remain in the system/pay back.

Any GPs interested in this scheme should complete the registration form.
