GP SPIN: New Salaried portfolio roles for newly qualified GPs


The GP Federations of North Central London (NCL) are delighted to announce a new cohort of innovative salaried GP posts. These will include sessions with a local practice and then a range of salaried innovative portfolio roles (SPIN) in local Trusts. These options take into account the interests expressed in the London 2017 GP trainee survey, our local Vocational Training Scheme (VTS) survey in 2019 and discussions with a number of the local VTS schemes.

Priority will be given to GPs who have just completed or are about to complete their GP training and would therefore be able to take up posts from January/February 2020 and also to recently qualified GPs (up to 5 years) who are working as locums or otherwise not in permanent employment. It is hoped there will be another cohort of roles advertised in 2020.

For a full description of the scheme, please download the North Central London GP Salaried Portfolio Innovation (SPIN) Scheme Recruitment Booklet (PDF file) 

The posts will comprise:

  • A permanent offer of a salaried GP contract in one of the listed GP practices in the NCL area of between 4 and 7 sessions a week (please see booklet for list of practices) in which the GP will be employed by the GP Practice
  • A portfolio role for two sessions per week with a local provider, for one to two years
  • Peer support with a mentor, as a cohort hosted by the local GP Federation/Training Hub with input from a local GP Programme Director.
