Next Generation GP

The Next Generation GP Nottingham team invite you to apply for a fully-funded place on this year’s ‘Next Generation GP’ in Nottingham, a programme seeking to inspire emerging future leaders in General Practice.

The core of the programme will consist of 5 evening events held in Nottingham, once a month, starting in August 2018. 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 local trainees and early career GPs
  • EMPOWER: through a series of workshops designed to increase your ability to shape care within and beyond your organisation.


In the face of unprecedented pressures the landscape of the NHS is changing rapidly, and the centre of gravity is moving rapidly towards primary care. This represents an exciting opportunity for new GPs to be involved in improving frontline services for patients.

That said, with the largest curriculum and the shortest time to learn it all, many of us start out without a clear understanding of the system we'll be working in, the changes being planned around us, or the tools to lead change effectively. The belief that the success of any sustainable change in the NHS will be based on the strength of the network of people behind it, was the driving force behind the creation of this programme.


Participants will benefit from the unique opportunity to meet, engage with, and ask questions of some of the foremost leaders in UK general practice.

Each evening is divided into two parts. The first is a themed workshop, talk or facilitated group work session addressing a specific leadership challenge. Complementing each of these will be an interview with an inspiring national leader, with time for the audience to put their own questions to guests.

Please note, as the programme is fully funded, applicants must be able to commit to attending 4 of the 5 events.

Dates and speakers confirmed include:

Tuesday 28th August - Prof Nick Harding (Chair of Sandwell and Birmingham CCG)

Wednesday 26th September- Dr Nikki Kanani (Deputy Director of Primary Care, NHSE)

Thursday 18th October - Peter Homa (Chair of the Leadership Academy)

Tuesday 20th November - Tracy Taylor (CEO of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust)

Tuesday 11th December - Martin McShane (Chief Medical Officer, Optum)


Next Generation GP is for GP trainees and early career GPs with an interest in health policy and the wider NHS. You do not have to be based in Nottingham- applications will be accepted from anywhere.
