GP-S – Free Mentoring, Coaching and Signposting Service

Free peer mentoring, coaching and signposting for all GPs & Practice Managers

All Practice Managers and GPs in Derbyshire can access a free peer mentor within days with GP-S.

GP-S can be used for any problem or opportunity you may have, on top of being useful for your own personal or professional development. If you’re not sure if GP-S would benefit you, get in touch with them to find out more. Their mentors are all fully trained and are able to support you to develop a positive way forward for you and work with you to put plans into action.

You will be able to access your own peer mentor for up to four two-hour long face to face sessions over the course of a year. The mentors are from a variety of roles and backgrounds so they’re able to understand your current circumstances. You can work with your mentor to arrange when and where sessions are held, and you will always be allocated to a mentor that can work with your schedule to make it simple for you to access sessions.

The service has been running since 2015 and has been accessed by around one in ten GPs in Derbyshire. If you’re a practice manager, please be aware access to GP-S is within a pilot stage and therefore if you’d like to access the service, it’s best to do so as soon as possible.

Feedback suggests GP-S is useful for building confidence, resilience and general wellbeing as well as allowing you to positively move forward.

If you’d like to find out more or want to access your own peer mentor:
