Working with the Royal College of General Practitioners and the General Practitioners Committee of the BMA, we have written to a number of GPs to let them know how they can help support the GP workforce including letting people know how they can ask to be temporarily registered on the England Performers List.

If you haven’t heard from NHS England and NHS Improvement or from the General Medical Council but want to volunteer, please email the team at

Support during COVID-19

There is a dedicated FutureNHS page providing GPs with a platform to engage with colleagues during this time and access a peer support network as needed. If you have any other query regarding this process, please email the team and we will respond to you as soon as possible:

GPs returning to work in the NHS have the same access as permanent staff to free support designed to help staff take steps to maintain their physical and mental health and overall wellbeing.

You can also access support for managing your own mental health from the free, confidential NHS Practitioner Health Service.
