Lewisham PCN Opportnities


North Lewisham PCN GP Fellow

North Lewisham PCN are looking for expressions of interest from GPs who qualified in the last 18 months who would like to spend 1 session a week working as a GP fellow in North Lewisham PCN. They will also get one session a month peer support with other fellows in SE London from Dr Dean Yang, SPIN fellowship lead.

North Lewisham PCN would want  you work within our PCN work stream to focus on inclusion. This includes those disenfranchised by traditional GP service delivery,  to address health inequalities and support health and wellbeing, including BAME groups and ensure High Frequency users of General Practice needs are being addressed.

It builds on the work that has been done by the  Darzi  and HEE GP Fellow and Time for Care programme including :

  • Ensure we deliver on the outputs from Time for care, ensuring the registrations processes in place, and searches to facilitate access for those who may be excluded by the digital first approach
  • Building the links with local 3rd sector organisations  and GP Practices and PCN staff, including utilising local influencers to support preventative health care and early health seeking behaviour for significant symptoms including cancer
  • Frequent Attenders in General Practice with the Darzi Fellow Programme embedding continuity of care, care planning and system change

There will be support both from mentoring within the fellowship programme and from with the PCN with clinical supervision and staff to  work with you to support delivery

It will be funded at £9,500 / portfolio session. There needs to be agreement with your employing practice as to whether they reduce your commitment so it is done within existing working hours or if you do an additional session as a fellow.

It is for 2 years, although there may be the option to extend to 2 sessions per week next year.
