Peer Mentoring

Posted in GP

This page provides information on:

  • Opportunities for experienced GPs to become mentors, and
  • Opportunities for GPs to receive mentoring

Career Pathway

  • Funding is available in STW for experienced GPs to receive training/top-up training to become mentors.
  • Once trained mentors are linked up with GP colleagues who request mentoring – often newly-qualified or First 5s GPs

Training Hub Offers

  • We commission training for GPs to become mentors/enhance their mentoring skills
  • Our local system works with a company called GP-S who provide a management/matching service for us – i.e. to match-up trained mentors with GPs who require mentoring.
