You’ve got this far. How do you explore the world of GP and try it on for size? It’s not so easy if your GP placement was years ago - if at all! By now you may have more questions than answers. 
 
You can always ask another doctor (we can help you arrange that) or get a broader perspective by searching for thoughts and views online. Facebook has many doctor forums and groups (including Choose GP) Follow organisations on Twitter, RCGP, BMJ, BMA, or see what specific GPs are working on in your area. Reach out and get in touch. 
 
GPs are specialists in primary care. Remember as a doctor or consultant (yes many switch to GP training) you already have valuable skills and experience. 
 
If you want to pin down some of the detail, applicant guidance, recruitment timeline and area maps with local options are a good place to start. 
 
Talk to newly qualified or experienced GPs, trainees and trainers in your area with similar interests and ask them directly. E-mail Daryl and the team gprecruitment@hee.nhs.uk to help you find connections.
