Mid-career GPs are a broad group and there is no universally agreed definition of the term. The Phoenix Programme considers mid-career GPs to include colleagues who are greater than 2 years post qualification through to those anticipating continuing in clinical practice for at least the next five years.
We have two main schemes of support and career development available currently.
For any mid-career colleague wishing to develop their career, to feel inspired and re-energised about their role and to develop new skills to take back to their place of work, we have partnered with Phoenix GP, a national organisation for a series of group training events.
We have also created mid-career PCN fellowship posts for colleagues wishing to undertake some project development work within their PCN. These fellowships started in October 2021 and will run for 12 months. We are hopeful that we will be able to fund further fellowships in 2022.
