Post CCT GP Fellowship Programme - HEE NW 2019/2020

Health Education England North West 2019-20 Post-CCT GP Fellowship Programme – adverts for posts available  


The NHS Five Year Forward View (FYFV) gave a target of 250 GP Fellowships by 2020. As part of this Health Education England (HEE) has agreed a national programme framework and investment model, which will be managed by HEE across the North. The North West has approval for 36 posts.  


The aim of the programme is to support newly qualified GPs to develop the leadership and advanced clinical skills required for the future of GP development. This will facilitate both individual career development and local health service needs.  


Full time posts  


The full-time programme will be delivered over a 9-10 session week and run for 12 months. The programme will allow for local variation in terms of content and clinical focus, the structure of Fellowship programmes will include: 



At least 40% (likely 3- 4 sessions p/w) of traditional general practice, to develop clinical maturity as a GP. It is likely a primary care provider will be the main employer.  



Up to 40% of time to develop skills and involvement in GP development beyond the MRCGP curriculum and relevant to the fellowship and five year forward aims. This might cover areas of workforce development within a practice including new ways of working, and could also be focused on priority areas for development such as urgent and emergency care or leadership, or in specific/ specialty areas for example care of the elderly such as frailty, mental health, oncology, paediatrics, veteran’s health etc. It may be a mix of clinical and organisational work. 



10% (1 session p/w) of protected education and training time. It is intended that an academic underpinning will frame the programme and provide robust governance and quality assurance. This may involve completion of a Postgraduate Certificate. Funding is available to support a range of Postgraduate Certificates and Diploma’s available in a range of areas, to be chosen by each fellow. If this will require more than a half a day a week and your host practice agrees then they can apply to have this increased to two sessions per week.



Fellows will attend educational sessions facilitated by HEE NW. They will also be invited to attend the Higher Professional Education programme of 5 days of education per year, and made aware of other educational opportunities.   





A less-than-full-time programme will be considered. Given the nature of the programme, this could be up to 0.8wte to be discussed on an individual basis. How this breaks down in terms of funding for the education and training element will be determined on a case-by-case basis.  


The posts are ideally intended to be the first substantive posts after CCT (not counting locums) to fit with the aim of recruiting new GPs. However, applicants with more experience can be considered if places are available within the first five years of completing training.
