Post-CCT Fellowships are innovative posts available for GPs in their first 5 years after qualification. In 2020/21, Health Education England will fund 56 fellowships across the North West.

CCGs, Trusts, Federations and GP Practices can apply for funding for GP roles that come under one of five broad categories of fellowship:

  • Educational - stimulating early career GP educators through involvement with undergraduate and postgraduate education and the attainment of postgraduate health professionals’ education qualifications. We are significantly increasing GP training capacity in the NW and recently-qualified GPs can apply for training to become clinical supervisors for Foundation Doctors, GP Trainees and the wider primary care workforce.
  • System Leadership - supporting emerging GP leadership within the local healthcare system – CCGs, STP/ICS, training hubs, HEE. This may include formal qualification in leadership e.g. PG Cert.
  • Health Equity - using the fellowship programme to reduce health inequalities – prioritising fellowships to offer clinical placements in practices in under-doctored or socio-economically deprived areas.
  • Clinical - helping GPs to develop a clinical special interest e.g. dermatology, frailty, palliative care. These fellowships may often be driven by individuals
  • Academic - supporting early academic careers, bridging the gap from pre-CCT Academic Career Fellows (ACF) to higher academic study

Funding is available to help meet the costs of 2 sessions per week of protected study / professional development time (up to £18,964) and the cost of additional training or qualifications (up to £5,000) for a maximum of 12 months.

The organisation hosting the fellowship will be expected to advertise the posts, appoint to the posts and meet the cost of employing the GP for the remaining sessions. Posts are expected to commence in early autumn 2020.

National guidance is also available below for reference.
