Why Work in the UK?
GPs in England are the cornerstone of the NHS, the first port of call for patients. GPs typically work from practices, leading teams of healthcare and support staff, and working hand-in-hand with other healthcare professionals to deliver the level of care that patients have come to expect of the NHS.
There are 3 steps within the scheme, which are:
STEP 1 - Observational Post
Description: you will receive ongoing support to easily integrate into the NHS and to better understand the British health system policy, structure and activity. The training programme is delivered by GP Trainers, coordinated by Health Education England and will support your preparation for the MCQ and Simulated Surgery exams
STEP 2 - Supervised GP Placement
Description: you will start working under a supervised placement and you will be monitored by a GP Trainer. The results of the MCQ and Simulated Surgery will determine the length of the placement.
Monthly net income: £3,500
Duration: expected to be around 6 months
Other benefits: one-off payment towards your indemnity insurance
STEP 3 - Independent GP Work
Description: following your placement, you will start working independently and unsupervised as a GP in the UK, employed by a GP practice. You will have your own appointments and you will organise your activity independently. This contract is usually for a minimum of 3 years.
Annual gross income: From £68,000 and uplifted annually at least in line with the Review Body recommended an increase.
Other benefits: you can work as a locum doing extra shifts to boost your income if you wish.
This is a unique opportunity to work in partnership with NHS England, making what has traditionally been a difficult process simple and stress-free.
