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.
