Next Generation GP South Yorkshire 2020 is back for the third year running!

Next Generation GP is for GP trainees and early career GPs (first 5-7 years) with an interest in health policy and the wider NHS. You do not have to be based in South Yorkshire, applications will be accepted from anywhere.

Applications are open on Monday 9th December, and will close on Monday 6th January at 4pm (see link below)

This nationally expanding and fully-funded programme seeks to inspire emerging future leaders in General Practice, and this year is no exception, with a fantastic line up of workshops and interviews by foremost leaders in healthcare as shown below.

The programme consists of 5 evening events from February to June 2020, based in Sheffield.

Why? Next Generation GP aims to:

· ENERGISE: through access to the stories, perspectives and expertise of inspiring leaders at the forefront of primary care.

· ENGAGE: through a supportive network of like-minded Trainees and early-career GPs

· EMPOWER: through a series of workshops designed to increase your ability to shape care within and beyond your organisation.

As the landscape of the NHS changes rapidly, the centre of gravity is moving rapidly towards primary care. That said, with the largest curriculum and the shortest time to learn it all, many of us start out without a clear understanding of our healthcare system, or the tools to lead change effectively. Our driving force behind the creation of this programme is our belief that sustainable change in the NHS is based on the strength of the people behind it.

The evening sessions are split into two parts with food provided. They will involve a workshop, talk or facilitated group work session addressing a specific leadership challenge as well as hearing from an inspiring national leader. With a chance for the audience to engage and ask their own questions to the guest. There will also be ample networking opportunities with guest speakers and delegates.

Dates and speakers confirmed include:
Thursday 6th February – Dr Laura Neilson & Dr Rob Varnam

Thursday 12th March – Carolyn Wilkins & Dr Steve Kell

Tuesday 14th April – Dr Hannah Morgan & Dr Raj Patel

Tuesday 5th May – Hannah Miller, Gallup strength finders
