One career endless opportunities. Choose GP

'One career endless opportunities. Choose GP' aims to encourage more trainee doctors to think about becoming a GP.

Improving recruitment into general practice

We have been working with partners to encourage more trainee doctors to think about becoming a GP. The campaign One career endless opportunities. Choose GP has the backing of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and the British Medical Association (BMA) GPs committee and NHS England.

The campaign seeks to inspire and inform young medics about a career in general practice as they make their decision about which specialty training to apply for. A team of qualified GPs have been recruited as ambassadors to talk about their experience of training, working in general practice and provide first-hand advice to those applying this year.

Further information can be found on the GP National Recruitment Office's website.

There are many reasons why general practice is an attractive option for doctors who enjoy and want to use their breadth of medical knowledge and continue to develop clinical skills.

Pre-CCT fellowships are intended to provide further opportunities in areas not included in the standard GP curriculum. Training places are subject to local availability. They are not an extension to standard GP training but provide additional experience and qualifications in for example, academic general practice, leadership, education, commissioning or new models of care such as frail elderly or urgent care. Please email the GP Recruitment team for further information.
