Deep End Pioneer Scheme

Fellowship opportunity

Applications are invited for an exciting career opportunity for early career GPs

The Glasgow Deep End GP Pioneer Project is open to applications for a further three GP Fellows for Year 3 from August 2019 until the end of March 2020.

One five session and two seven session posts are available. All posts include one session of protected time per week for professional and service development.  

For more information and how to apply, please access this job pack.

The project is supported by the Scottish Government GP Recruitment and Retention Fund. The scheme has already been running successfully from 2016 to 2018. The aim is to RECRUIT new GP talent into deprived areas of Glasgow, and to RETAIN senior GP partners already working in these practices.

There are two parts of the projects:  

  1. additional capacity and releasing experienced GPs, and
  2. academic programme to enhance knowledge and skills for GPs working in deprived areas.

Here is the link to a short video the current fellows made.

About the scheme

The Deep End GP Pioneer Scheme aims to support recruitment and retention of both early career and experienced general practitioners working in very deprived areas (the Deep End)

The overall aim of the proposal is to develop and establish a change model for general practices serving very deprived areas, involving the recruitment of younger GPs, the retention of experienced GPs and their joint engagement in strengthening the role of general practice as the natural hub of local health systems.
