Phoenix GP: Career Development Programme for Mid-Career GPs

We are now taking applications for Phoenix GP, a career development and leadership program specifically targeting mid-career GPs.

The programme provides a series of 6 evening sessions, 1 per month for 6 months for a cohort of 30 participants, balancing a series of talks from inspirational GPs with dedicated skills workshops developed by the Time for Care team to focus on the challenges faced by mid-career GPs. These include topics such as:

  • Change management
  • Fundamentals of quality improvement
  • Engagement and influencing people
  • Facilitating online meetings
  • Increasing personal impact and influence

The program is free to attend and is delivered virtually through MS Teams. It is supported by NHSE and RCGP and would be funded by C&P Training Hub.

Phoenix GP in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough will run for 1 evening per month for 6 months, Jan-June 2022.

As spaces for the programme are limited, we will select the applicants whose aims and career stage are most consistent with the aims of the programme. We aim to provide the fully-funded programme for as many GPs as possible but if you are unsuccessful, further programmes are planned for the future.

The deadline for applications is 13th January 2022

“I’d had a rubbish day & was feeling really disheartened when I arrived. By the end of the evening I felt inspired, enthused & energised – thank you so much”

“Really worthwhile. This can’t change the problems behind the current situation but really good to meet, get support, share ideas & feel better about what I am doing. Thank you.”

“Hugely enjoyable evenings. It is having a big impact on how I feel about being a GP and how I approach things in practice. It might just keep me as a GP”
