GP Ready

Launching your career in general practice.

In September 2020, the RCGP celebrate newly qualified and First5 GPs with GPReady, a jam-packed programme with all you need to launch your career. As your College, we look forward to supporting you in this exciting new stage of your career and beyond.

The GP transition

The transition between GP training and working as a qualified GP can be exciting but daunting.  Here is a quick checklist of what you should expect to see and hear from us:

Your CCT

Please ensure you have applied to the GMC for your CCT

Your RCGP membership

2 weeks after your official qualification date the GMC notify us, and you will be automatically upgraded to full membership. There’s nothing you need to do.

You will receive information from us containing everything you need to know about your membership, this consists of bitesize emails over the first few weeks.

In the meantime, your well - earned membership certificate will be winging its way to you, this will arrive by post within six weeks of becoming a Member. If you need something sooner, a letter confirming your full membership of the College (in pdf format via email) can be issued upon request 

Your local faculty

In your first few weeks your faculty will also be in touch with you to welcome you to an event in your local area.  These events are designed for new first5 and will give you information on useful local knowledge, how to join a CPD group, signposting to local support networks etc as well as providing you with thorough guidance on acing your first appraisal. This is also an opportunity for you to network with local colleagues, peers and RCGP representatives.

Your celebration

In November, we will send you an invitation to celebrate your success at one of our New Members Ceremonies

This is a great opportunity to join the president, friends and family to celebrate not only what you have achieved so far but marvel at what lies ahead.

Your life circumstances

Are you moving house, having a baby, working part-time or taking time out? Don’t forget to let us know, we will amend your record to ensure you are paying the correct fee and are being sent the correct information.
