Retainers & Returners

GP Retainers - See our dedicated page for the GP Retainer Scheme launched in 2017 -   https://www.wessexlmcs.com/gpretainerscheme

Both of these schemes have been refreshed with the advent of the GP Forward View. The Induction and Refresher Scheme has been streamlined and now has a dedicated unit to help practitioners return to practice after a career break. They have a dedicated website which is linked below.

If you are considering returning to General Practice after a career break or need help and support to work less than full time, then these may be the schemes for you:
