Recruiting returning GPs pilot for 2016
Published: 1 June, 2016
The Targeted Investment in Recruiting Returning Doctors scheme is for GP Practices that are recognised by their NHS England regional team as in need of additional support to enable recruitment. The pilot enables designated practices to access relocation allowances and an educational bursary for GPs they are able to recruit, assisting them to encourage GPs to take up positions.
To be considered for the scheme a GP practice must be able to demonstrate that despite frequent attempts they have been unable to recruit and have held vacant GP post(s) for a minimum of 12 months, and that this is causing a risk to the continuity of patient service.
Initially applications for support can be made between 1 May 2016 and 30 June 2016.
