What is the cost?
Initial discussion with the Wessex LMCs and the Deanery Education Team is free. If Wessex Insight support is needed, we can guide you and develop a specific learning plan with you. Wessex Insight will also offer, where appropriate, a learning bursary to cover up to 50% of the costs for GPs registered with the Wessex LMCs. The maximum learning bursary available through the Wessex Insight scheme will be £2,000. An individual GP would be expected to match the Bursary granted, up to the £2000 maximum figure, allowing up to £4000 in total to meet your needs.
Who Is Not Suitable for Referral To Wessex Insight?
- those already involved in "poor performance" procedures
- those whose needs can be met through existing education provision
This innovative scheme is aimed at bridging the gap between educational provision for doctors who already receive formal educational support and existing educational provision which is not tailored to meet individualised learning needs.
