GP Return to Work

23 September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Are you a GP due to return, or have recently returned, to clinical work after a prolonged period of absence (e.g. maternity leave or ill health)? Would you like to increase your clinical confidence, have updates on hot CPD topics, discuss appraisal requirements and meet others in a similar position?

This one day course, run by the Primary Care Workforce Centre, will support GPs to return to work after a period of prolonged absence (e.g. maternity leave or ill health) and help build confidence. It offers returners the opportunity to practice consulting skills in a simulated learning environment, take part in CPD updates on hot clinical topics, discuss appraisal requirements with an appraiser and spend time with GPs in a similar situation, building a network for peer support.

The day will provide 3 simulated patient consultations, an hour of CPD updates, a session on appraisal and the chance to build relationships with other GPs in Dorset who are in a similar position. The programme will count as CPD points for appraisal purposes and there will be an offer, to all participants, of ongoing return to work coaching, through the Dorset GP Coaching Faculty.

The course is open to all GPs and GP Trainees in Dorset who have had an absence from work of greater than three months and have either just returned, or are due to return to clinical work in the next three months.

What previous attendees have said:

“The consultations were very useful to gauge my consultations skills as lone working doesn’t help you in objective constructive criticism/praise!”

“I would definitely recommend and would have liked to have done before I actually went back to work.”

“Great day. Delivered in a friendly way and supportive. Would definitely recommend to other GPs.”


Lunch and light refreshments will be provided.
