The North Cumbria GP Fellowship Programme is a 2 year programme, created to support ongoing development and support of our newly qualified GPs through dedicated, ring fenced time. Nationally funded, locally developed.


  • We've approached this national roll out differently in North Cumbria.
  • We want to ensure the needs of GPs are put first, rather than that of the System.
  • We're focusing on an individualised approach to our Fellows.
  • Targeting an individual's interests and allowing them to develop strengths.

Ultimately, we want GPs to feel invested in and develop within their early years post qualification.
