How to apply for a fellowship place

Application is via your employing practice. If you are a newly qualified General Practice Nurse employed in a Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Practice then please ask your practice to consider enrolling you in the Fellowship scheme.

If you are seeking employment, ask at interview whether the practice is already signed up to the scheme and if they are willing to enrol you in the Fellowship programme.
