Targeted Investment in Recruiting Returning Doctors Scheme

The Targeted Investment in Recruiting Returning Doctors Scheme is a pilot scheme that invests resources in GP practices which can evidence that they have historically encountered difficulty in recruiting GPs (held vacancies for a minimum of 12 months).

The pilot scheme offers support to practices to promote and advertise their posts.  It is part of NHS England’s commitment, set out in its General Practice Forward View (GP Forward View), to recruit more doctors and target those areas where there are the most severe shortages.

The pilot scheme enables designated practices to access up to:

  • Up to £8,000 in relocation allowances for GPs
  • Up to £2,000 in an education bursary
  • Up to £2,000 locum cover for when the new GP is undertaking educational sessions

Commissioning Support Units (CSUs) will provide marketing support to assist practices with enhancing and promoting vacancies.

Practices were invited to apply for the scheme by their NHS England local team.
