Next Generation GP

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub are excited to be working in partnership with NextGen GP to support delivery of their funded national leadership programme for trainees and new GPs in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.

What is Next Gen GP?

Next Generation GP is a Leadership programme for GP trainees and early career GPs (first 5-7 years) with an interest in health policy and the wider NHS. Formal qualifications in leadership and/or management are not required. Instead, we’re looking for enthusiasm, commitment, passion and drive to change the system around us to better serve the needs of our patients and the profession.

The programme aims to:

ENERGISE: through access to the stories, perspectives and expertise of inspiring leaders.

​​​ENGAGE: through a supportive network of like minded local trainees and early career GPs.

EMPOWER: through a series of workshops designed to increase your ability to shape care within and beyond your organisation.

At the core of the programme is a series of 5 x monthly 90-minute evening sessions, held via Zoom, each including:

  • Interview with a local or national leader, among the foremost leaders in UK general practice
  • An opportunity to ask questions to the leader
  • Breakout rooms, to get to know your colleagues, and build a network of inspired GPs and Trainees who are passionate about leading change

Participants will also have access to our Facebook group, a safe space for participants and speakers from across the country to connect, share resources, and support each other in our leadership journeys going forwards.

What previous programme participants say:

“I am working on two projects now in my local area that the course has been crucial to giving me the confidence to initiate and lead on.  As a relatively new GP I have found leading on such projects is very daunting but having attended the course, heard and met such inspiring speakers I definitely feel energised, engaged and empowered! Thank you!”

“It was an absolutely fantastic session. Every time I listen to a NextGen podcast or webinar, I come away inspired and enthused about my career choice.”

“I loved Helen’s infectious enthusiasm for general practice. I started the session tired and weary, but finished with a huge smile on my face. Her practical tips for managing clinical and non-clinical time were SO useful.”
