The pilot scheme is intended to invest resources in practices which can evidence that they have historically encountered difficulty in recruiting GPs i.e. that they have had a GP vacancy for a minimum of 12 months.
This targeted investment scheme aims to encourage doctors interested in returning to work as a GP in the NHS, and those GPs on the retained doctor scheme, to seek employment in areas which have historically struggled to recruit GPs.
The pilot enables designated practices to access up to £10,000 in relocation allowances and an educational bursary for GPs they are able to recruit, assisting them to encourage GPs to take up positions.
