‘Next Generation GP’ is a national fully funded programme for emerging leaders in general practice designed by, and for, a group of early-career GPs and trainees. The aim is to inspire early career GPs (trainees and those in their first seven years post completion of training) to be informed leaders as well as excellent clinicians, with the insight and connections they need to change and improve the system in which we work. 

Now Next Gen GP is delighted to announce that applications are open for a new programme in Surrey Heartlands. The programme asks: “Are you a GP trainee or new GP ready to join 1300 other Next Gen GPs?

The Surrey Next Gen GP Programme was launched by Surrey Heartlands Senior Responsible Officer Dr Claire Fuller, herself a GP, who said: “I am delighted to be launching Next Gen GP in Surrey. It is a great programme and I would urge colleagues to please spread the word to trainee and newly qualified GPs.

“In the face of unprecedented pressures, the landscape of the NHS is changing rapidly with the centre of gravity rapidly shifting towards primary care. This represents an exciting opportunity for GPs, with their unique overview across the system, to be involved in improving frontline services for patients.”

The programme framework consists of a series of evening events with high quality speakers with the first event planned for 27 June. Full details on how to apply for a place and what to expect can be found here.
