In the General Practice Forward View we made a commitment to support GPs who no longer work in general practice to return to work. So far we have:
- Made improvements to the National GP Induction and Refresher Scheme, which simplifies the return to work routes further, with new portfolio route, and other measures to reduce the length of time taken to complete the scheme
- Piloted the Targeted Investment in Recruiting Returning Doctors Scheme which offers financial incentives for GPs to return to work in areas of greatest need.
