About Us

This page gives more information about our current offers of Support for Primary Care.

Free peer mentoring and coaching

GP-S can be used by anyone who would like to explore ways to develop themselves. This could be personally, professionally or within your career. We aim to build resilience in the General Practice workforce by allowing you time and space to develop your personal goals.

This service is currently available to all GPs in:

  • Nottinghamshire
  • Derbyshire
  • Sheffield
  • Mid and South Essex
  • West Essex
  • As well as ST3s within Nottinghamshire

From the 1st April 2022 we no longer offer mentoring and coaching within Shropshire, instead interested clients should click here for more information on mentoring in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and/or contact Phil Morgan (philip.morgan3@nhs.net)

The offer:

  1. Once you contact GP-S you will be contacted by our team within 3 working days and provided with next steps
  2. If you’re eligible, you’ll be asked to choose a mentor
  3. The mentor will then make contact with you within two weeks to arrange your first session.
  4. From this point you will have access to 1-1 mentoring with your mentor over the course of 12 months.
  5. Sessions are virtual as standard making it easy to fit around your day to day life with options for face to face if requested.

Confidentiality

We understand the importance of confidentiality and so work hard to ensure those who use GP-S are protected.
All of our team sign a confidentiality agreement and we use a secure online portal to store your details which can only be seen by mentors and mentor leads you have approved.
Mentors do not store details of your sessions unless you ask them to.

Please note that we’re here to help but this is not an emergency service – If you find yourself in such a situation please seek help from your own GP or other agencies or contact BMA Counselling by calling 0330 123 1245
