GPs and GP Trainees in Mid and South Essex can access eight hours of support with a trained local peer mentor across 12 months. The service support offer is suitable for anyone who feels they are stuck on a particular problem or opportunity either within their personal or professional lives. We are able to work with you to empower you to create and work towards goals that feel right for you.
Our mentors don’t give advice but work with you through recognised coaching and mentoring models to achieve this. All our mentors are GPs so understand the role and sessions are predominantly virtual meaning you don’t have to take time out of your day to travel to and from a venue making it easy to fit around other commitments.
The service is self-directed and is suitable for those who are willing to engage and have time to do so.
An outline of how we work to support you locally:
Please note: GP-S is a non-emergency service providing peer to peer mentoring and coaching using predominantly the Egan model. This is a mentoring and coaching service for clients who would like support with personal or professional development including being stuck on moving forward with problems or opportunities. It is not suitable for individuals suffering with poor mental health or needing practical hands-on support.
If you feel you need immediate support please call 999 or 111 or get in touch with NHS Practitioner Health who can support with mental health concerns.
All GPs who have CCT’d in the past 12 months or are currently in their ST3 year and due to CCT in the next 12 months can access a GP New to Practice Fellowship through Mid and South Essex ICS. To find out more take a look at their booklet on the offer here: N2P Fellowship Guide v2 October 2022
