Often CPD is focused on guidelines, latest medical developments, and research, on Clinical Knowledge Summaries. Of course, this is essential learning, but is it what drives us in our work?

As a local first five group we wanted to provide something a little different. A session where you couldn’t obtain the same learning simply by googling it. We wanted to explore what makes being a GP meaningful and beautiful: The social, emotional and spiritual challenges of our day to day work and the bigger picture of general practice.

The result is the Clinical Wisdom Summaries, a new series of fireside interviews with local senior and recently retired GPs to explore what a career in GP has meant to them, what they have learnt and what they wished they had known when they first started.

The sessions are open to all Cambridgeshire & Peterborough GPs in the first 5 years of practice and will be a great opportunity to get to know a wider local network of early career GPs.

The second event in this series sees Dr Morooj Mohammad in conversation with Dr Peter Bailey

Morooj Mohammad works full time as a portfolio GP in Cambridge. She is an active member of the Cambridge first five group and has organised the ‘First Five’ GP education evening meetings. Most recently she has been asked to join the Akeso coaching operational board and is developing an interest in coaching and mentoring.

Peter Bailey started his career as a partner at Red House, Chesteron following completion of his VTS in Cambridge. His ideas about the mysteries of general practice were published in 2014 in his book ‘The New Doctor, Patient, Illness Model – restoring the authority of the GP consultation.’ Peter currently works at NHS Practitioner Health – providing mental health general practice to doctors themselves. All his patients are now doctors! 


Format: For now these sessions will take place over Zoom, but we will be hopefully moving to F2F sessions in the future.

(Please note that bookings for this event will close at 5pm on Thursday 2nd December)
