GP career support

A range of support is available to GPs at all stages of their career, whether in their first five years, mid-career, nearing retirement or after taking a career break.

Working with Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) and BMA, NHS England has developed a GP career support pack setting out what support is available.

This pack can be used to support discussions with a GPs Responsible Officer Team – usually their appraisal lead – to obtain further advice and support on the initiatives and schemes set out in the pack.

The pack will be kept updated on a regular basis. If you have any feedback or suggested content please email
