Newly Qualified GPs

‘Leading the Way’ – a development programme for GPs qualified in the last 5 years

“Leading the Way” is open to any Suffolk GP in the first five years after qualification. The programme offers a series of 10 workshop style modules focusing on healthcare provision and management, and introduces practical tools and techniques to support the individual in their career development. The series of workshops provide an ideal forum for education and networking.

The key aims are to:

  • Help younger GPs gain key skills
  • Promote awareness and understanding of issues affecting primary care services
  • Enable networking and ideas sharing

The workshops focus on different areas including: how the NHS and social care system fit together, the role of general practice, understanding preferred styles of leadership and personal development planning – including opportunities for developing interests in specialisms, teaching and research.

Topics including developing a strategy and business plan for general practice, financial management, building a strong practice team, how to improve services and the place of general practice in the community and wider health economy are also covered.
