Cash for returning GPs

by in Funding, GPs, News

Cash for returning GPsPractices will be able to access more than £10,000 in funding to help former GPs return to work, it was announced yesterday.

The money includes up to £8,000 in relocation allowances and up to £2,000 for education costs.

The scheme will also allow up to £2,000 for locum cover for when a returning GPs are undertaking education, NHS England said.

The cash will be available for practices that have held a vacant GP post for at least 12 months.

Royal College of GPs chair Dr Maureen Baker said the scheme made “a lot of sense.”

She said: “It’s important that adequate safeguards remain in order to ensure patient safety, and that every GP who wants to return to practise in the UK is treated equally, but we need to cut through any unnecessary red tape, and working with NHS England, I’m pleased that we are making strides in this area.

“We hope this scheme will encourage returning GPs in hard to recruit areas in the best interests of providing safe care now and in the future, wherever our patients live.”
