This section of the website deals with professional issues that is relevant to individual GPs. It gives detailed advice and guidance on professional development, appraisal, revalidation and the way that GP performance is managed when there is a cause for concern. It also covers personal issues such as seniority, retirement and how to get support when things are getting difficult.
The partnership model of general practice is still a powerful way of a group of like-minded doctors working together. However it needs to be based on a robust partnership agreement. This is covered in this section, together with how to get help when partners are struggling to reach agreement.
We recognise that a far higher proportion of GPs now choose to work in a salaried capacity. We cater for their needs in this section.
