Greater Manchester NHSE GP Fellowships - A Great Opportunity for New GPs

Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to talk to Dr Mary Cheshire who is the GP lead on the NHS England Fellowships for Greater Manchester GPs. As she explains, this is a fairly informal fellowship done over 2 years offering different types of courses and support that essentially consists of a paid CPD session a week and a range of CPD events to facilitate this. The course runs a qualification in coaching people can sign up for and are offered Mentors. Completing a quality improvement project is encouraged, whether that is small or large and there are opportunities for support for this along the way. At the moment this is available for newly qualified GPs and those up to 2 years after CCT who are in Salaried or Partnership posts. 

There are other types of Fellowships - we mention the Health Education England GP Fellowships and GP Nurses Fellowships briefly, see details below. 

You can use these podcasts as part of your CPD - we don’t do certificates but they still count :)
