#ChooseGP Applications for GP Training Opening 

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. 

Clinical Entrepreneur Training Programme 

The Clinical Entrepreneur training programme is a workforce development programme for clinical and non-clinical NHS staff, run by NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Innovation, Research and Life Sciences group. The programme welcomes applications from a diverse range of clinical and non-clinical healthcare professionals with an interest in entrepreneurship and innovation – could this be you or someone you know? 
 
It is the biggest entrepreneurial workforce development programme of its kind, aiming to provide the commercial skills, knowledge and experience needed to successfully develop and spread innovative solutions to the challenges facing the NHS for the benefit of patients, staff and the wider NHS. More than 500 individuals including doctors, dentists, healthcare scientists, nurses and midwives, allied health professionals and pharmacists, have joined the programme since it launched in 2016. 
 
The programme offers expert mentoring, exclusive networking, and bespoke training to develop innovative ideas into products and businesses to benefit NHS patients. The curriculum covers all aspects of setting up and running a small business, including attracting investors, applying for funding, and ensuring appropriate corporate governance. Training on how to build a start-up, and how to operate in this highly charged environment, is delivered as a series of educational events attended by industry mentors. The programme allows entrepreneurs to pursue their innovation without having to leave the health service, providing a wider benefit to economic growth through inward investment in the health, social care and life science sectors. 
To apply for a place on the programme you need to register for an account on the Programme Management Office Research Management System. This guidance document provides advice on the application process. The deadline for applications is 1pm on 13 October 2020. 
 
This year, the recruitment process will be conducted virtually, to allow for social distancing. You may be invited to have a follow-up call, as part of the application process, and these will take place between 30 November 2020 and the 9 December 2020. The outcome of your application will be notified in January 2021.
