GP Return to Practice Programme (2021)

Last updated Wednesday 14th July 2021

The NHS GP Return to Practice (RtP) programme provides a safe, supported pathway for qualified GPs to return to NHS General Practice after an absence of more than 2 years.

It is designed for GPs who have previously been on the GMC GP Register and NHS England’s  Medical Performers List (MPL) and would like to return to work in general practice after a career break, raising a family or time spent working abroad.

All GPs are required to be on NHS England’s Medical Performers List before they can practice. The RtP programme must be completed before GPs can be approved for full inclusion on to the Medical Performers List and to work as an independent GP.
