Training Hubs and PCNs
Overview and benefits
SPIN New to Practice Fellowship is available to all newly qualified GPs who are working within general practice. This Fellowship explicitly focuses on working within and across a Primary Care Network (PCN).
The Fellowship has been able to offer support with PCN portfolio working as well as the GPs to take up substantive roles. The newly qualified GPs have the opportunity to understand the field they are working in and become embedded in the PCN.
The Fellowship offer allows for substantive staff to be employed by a practice, across a PCN or cluster of PCNs. The potential Fellows would be released from their practice clinical role for one session per week (pro rata) so they can participate in ‘Learning and Development’ activities relating to the Fellowship. This can include sessions such as mentorship/ supervision sessions, peer support conversations with other Fellows and opportunities to maximise their skills.
