At a challenging time for General Practice and the health system, excellent leadership is more important than ever. In the face of unprecedented pressure, the landscape of the NHS is changing rapidly, and the future direction of primary care and the NHS is being discussed. This represents an exciting opportunity for new GPs to have a voice in the future of improved frontline services for our patients. 

However, with the largest curriculum and the shortest time to learn it all, many of us start without a clear understanding of the system we’ll be working in, the changes being planned around us, or the tools to lead change effectively. Our belief is that the success of any sustainable change in the NHS will be based on the strength of the network of people behind it. This was the driving force behind the creation of this programme. 


Participants will benefit from the unique opportunity to engage with and ask questions of some of the foremost leaders in UK general practice and beyond. 

Each event will be an interview, themed workshop, talk, or facilitated group work session addressing specific leadership challenges. 

Please note, as the programme is fully funded, applicants must be able to commit to attending 4 of the 5 events.


Next Generation GP is for GP trainees and early career GPs (first 5-7 years) with an interest in driving change, health policy, and the wider NHS.
