In this episode of the Primary Care Knowledge Boost Podcast Doctors Lisa and Sara talk to Dr Mary Cheshire who is the GP lead on the NHS England Fellowships for Greater Manchester GPs.
As Mary 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.
