Gloucester City Health Inequalities Fellowship

Innovative, interesting, and challenging new GP roles in 2019

Are you a motivated GP who wants to continue their education, combining clinical experience with academic learning?

Do you have an interest in understanding inequality in health and healthcare for inner city patients, and the public health implications of deprivation?

Would you like tailored support and mentoring to settle into a new primary care setting?

There are four of these ground breaking, innovative, flexible and integrated one-year fellowship posts available.

Core elements

Clinical sessions – four per week working in core General Practice as a salaried GP, employed directly by one of our fellowship practices.

Health Inequalities session – one paid session a week to focus on local health inequalities, which includes an initial two to three month induction/shadowing period, followed by project development tailored to the learning needs of the Fellow, and health needs of the population.

Academic study – One day a week undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Public Health at the University of the West of England (UWE) to develop expertise in the wider determinants of inequality in health and healthcare. Fully funded course fees and travel for the 22 week programme (attendance required during term time only).

Project Work and Mentoring – Following the initial induction period, participants will use their Health Inequalities session to work on a project of their choosing agreed with their practice. This may be allied to the UWE Public Health certificate, and could include mentoring or placement time with Gloucestershire County Council Public Health team. There will be opportunity to link with local peers, and wider networks nationally.

Fellows will be supported by a local mentor based in the employing practice, and will also have access to an independent mentor for support, and to discuss and reflect upon challenges during the year.
