One career endless opportunities. Choose GP
This aims to encourage more trainee doctors to think about becoming a GP.
The campaign aims to promote the challenge and benefits of learning generalist skills, being able to apply all aspects of medical training with the opportunity to pursue special interests and tailor a unique career in primary care.
Applications for GP specialty training are open three times a year for foundation year doctors, anyone wanting to switch from other specialty training programmes, trust grade doctors and consultants.
We have a number of GPs and trainees who are able to help with local or general enquiries.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put in contact.
Further information can be found on the GP National Recruitment Office (GPNRO) website.

2016 Professor Val Wass OBE was commissioned to investigate how general practice is taught in medical schools. The resulting report ‘By choice – not by chance’, looks at students experiences and shines the spotlight on the need to tackle long held views about general practice which is often perceived as a less valued career. It emphasises that change is key to making sure we have the GP workforce required to meet service and patient demands for the future.
The Royal College of GPs and the Medical Schools Council responded in 2017. Click to read the report Destination GP here.
2015 The Primary Care Workforce Commission, chaired by Martin Roland CBE, published a report ‘The future of primary care: creating teams for tomorrow’ which set out the Commission’s thinking including a call for greater collaboration across organisations and a broader range of staff involved in the delivery of healthcare.
