Applications for 2024/25 are now open (closing date midnight 16th April 2024). 
Please click on 'Application Process for 2024/25' below for full details. 

The investment in primary care set out in the GP Forward View includes funding for post-CCT Fellowships. These are innovative posts available for GPs in their first 5 years after qualification.  

ICBs, Trusts, Federations and GP Practices can apply for funding for GP roles that come under one of five broad categories of fellowship: 

  • System leadership – Supporting emerging GP leaders within the local healthcare system 

  • Health equity – Using the fellowship programme to reduce health inequalities 

  • Clinical – Helping GPs to develop a clinical special interest e.g. dermatology, frailty, palliative care 

  • Academic – Supporting early academic careers 

  • Educational – Stimulating early career GP educators through involvement with undergraduate or postgraduate education 

The funding is available to practices to help meet  the costs of 2 sessions per week of protected study / professional development time (up to £22,567) for a maximum of 12 months. Fellows can apply for a limited budget to support additional training and projects, and to cover travel- this amount is still to be determined. In past years it has been between £500 and £1000 per fellow. 

In Yorkshire and Humber, practices whose populations experience high levels of socioeconomic deprivation can apply for our innovative and exciting Trailblazer scheme, with a fantastic programme of education and support provided by Fair Health. 

The organisation hosting the fellowship will be expected to advertise the posts, appoint to the posts and meet the cost of employing the trainee for the remaining sessions.  

Detailed guidance is available under the 'documents' section below.
