We held the Career Start interviews last week and appointed 5 GP trainees who are about to finish their training.
Career Start is an exciting, innovative salaried post funded by NHS Grampian for newly qualified GPs. It allows a recently qualified GP to work in general practice for part of the week and also gives an opportunity to work in a specialty for 1 day a week. Our 5 newly appointed Career Starts will work in Old Age Psychiatry, Adult psychiatry, Undergrad teaching, Old Age Medicine and Medical Education. Each will work in a local GP practice. This post allows these young doctors to develop into a GPwSI- GP with a specialist interest, as well as developing their GP skills to become a more confident GP.
These posts will be advertised again in November this year for a Feb 18 start.
