What is GP Aspire?

GP Aspire initially starting as a pilot project in early 2018 to try and retain GPs considering leaving general practice.  After listening to GPs across the county, the project has now widened to support all GPs in Derbyshire at any stage of their career with the following:

  • 1:1 Careers advice
  • Support for those changing roles
  • Signposting to available support including wellbeing, mentoring, leadership and mental health
  • Job brokering
  • Help designing your perfect portfolio career
  • Welcome to work support for those re-joining the profession or new to Derbyshire

GP Aspire is also developing to include:

  • Targeted support for newly qualified GPs including the GP Preceptorship Programme
  • Facilitated Networking
  • Development programmes including the GP Partnership Development Programme

To summarise the current support available we have created this interactive GPTF Interactive Guide e-brochure explaining the local and national support available to Derbyshire GPs at all stages of their career journey.


A CHANGE OF ROLE? If you want advice on varied careers, a change in career or what options are available to you, please get in touch. We’re already supporting over 60 Derbyshire GPs in working out their next steps.

NEW TO GENERAL PRACTICE? If you’re qualifying this year and would like to know how to get support from the GP Preceptorship programme please contact us.

NEW TO DERBYSHIRE? Contact us for a welcome to work interview. You will receive dedicated GP peer support to introduce you to work in Derbyshire and discussion on the support and networking within the county.

THINKING OF LEAVING? If you have recently left the profession, changed role or are considering leaving the profession in the next 5 years we want to hear from you.

Calling all GPs with an interest in a career in health informatics

PRIMIS is seeking to increase its Clinical Adviser team.  PRIMIS Clinical Advisers are working general practitioners with an interest and expertise in health informatics.  The role is critical to the work that we do and is exceptionally varied – ranging from giving guidance on national data collection activities to the scoping and development of QI tools for use in general practice.

We are looking for working GPs with an interest in audit.  Expertise in the use of TPP SystmOne is desirable but not essential.  The ability to travel to our offices at the University of Nottingham on a regular basis is required, but remote working is also possible.

Our Clinical Advisers have an excellent reputation and are greatly experienced in the field of primary care health informatics.  Joining this team would be ideal for GPs seeking to diversify and start a career in health informatics.

PRIMIS Clinical Advisers are employed on a contractor basis.  The day rate has been designed to ensure that locum costs can be covered.  We are looking for GPs that can commit to approximately two to four days per month.

Please email enquiries@nottingham.ac.uk to express an interest, together with your contact details and location so that we may follow up with you.

Kind regards,
