Introduction for prospective scheme participants
All General Practitioners (GPs) and nurses who qualified within the last 12 months and hold – or are about to hold – a substantive salaried or partnership role are entitled to a place on the national General Practice Fellowship programme developed by NHS England and NHS Improvement.
The nursing programme is a two-year scheme designed to support newly qualified nurses (qualified within the last 12 months) in their early career as they become an embedded part of the primary care team in the Primary Care Network (PCN). New to practice nurses are also invited to participate. Through the scheme, their employer receives payment equivalent to one session per week (pro-rata) to support their release to participate in scheme activities. These activities are listed against three themes: Support and Networking, Learning and Development and PCN Rotational Working.
The nursing associate programme is 12 months duration aimed to support wellbeing and enable networking, learning and development.
