Next Generation GP

Herefordshire and Worcestershire

We are proud to announce Next Generation GP Herefordshire and Worcestershire 2021 is back for the second year running, now on Zoom!

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 speakers by foremost leaders in healthcare.

Applications are closed.

This is a fully funded programme, and we are kindly supported by NHS Herefordshire and Worcestershire CCG and NHS England.

The programme consists of 6 evening events from January 2021- June 2021, and will be held virtually on zoom for approx 90 minutes starting at 7:30pm * with the exception of March which will be a 2 hour session starting at 6.45pm.


 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.

 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.


Next Generation GP is for GP trainees and early career GPs (up to 7 years post CCT with allowances for parental leave etc) with an interest in health policy and the wider NHS. Applications will be accepted from colleagues within the Herefordshire and Worcestershire STP.
