Have your opinion heard!
Shape support for GPs returning from short career breaks

Dr. Pamela Curtis, GP Fellow for the Hub, invites GPs to participate in a short, anonymous questionnaire to help mould an ongoing project designed to increase support for, and retention amongst, members of the GP workforce.

The survey is aimed at GPs who are (or have been) out of the workplace on a short career break for 3 or more months in the preceding 2 years, or who are planning to take a short career break. It will evaluate perspectives on support available to, and the confidence of, these GPs upon their return to work, with a view to development and implementation of extra support, including ‘return to work’ courses.

This survey is but one part of this work, with a focus group involving a smaller sample of GPs scheduled to be run in May. If you would be interested in participating, please enter your details at the end of the survey or send a message to [email protected] / [email protected].

The deadline to respond is Thursday 6 May, in advance of the first event we intend to run, informed by this survey and the focus group, in mid-June.

Spearhead a project to reduce health inequalities
Open to all GPs, GPNs, and AHPs in BNSSG

We are offering a 12-month Population Health Fellowship, beginning this March, designed by Professor Maggie Rae (President of the Faculty of Public Health). This will be a fantastic chance for a primary care clinician to not only develop their leadership and management skills, but also to bolster their knowledge of Population Health and health inequalities.

Population Health work aims to improve the health and well-being of a group or population of people, and to reduce inequality in health outcomes, requiring action to address the wider, social determinants of health and involving collaboration with communities and organisations beyond the NHS. For more information on the significance of Population Health, please download the Fellowship rationale below.

You will work for 2 sessions (1 day) per week with the STP Population Health Management Team, to deliver a Population Health improvement project with a focus on reducing health inequalities. You will receive educational supervision from a local Public Health Consultant, training from the South West School of Public Health, and an education & training allowance for any relevant courses and qualifications. Again, for more information, please download the Fellowship details and Fellowship rationale documents below.

This offer is open to all GPs, GPNs, and AHPs in a substantive role in a GP practice in Bristol, North Somerset, or South Gloucestershire. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates. But do please note that applications must be in by Friday 29 January — to apply, please send your CV and a covering letter to Dr. Sarah Ballisat at [email protected].
