The Wessex Faculty RCGP are currently looking at the pressures facing GPs in the years approaching retirement. With this in mind the aim of this page is to offer signposting to support for GPs considering or planning their retirement. The page is under development, so if you know of any other resouces please let us know via the feedback link at the bottom of the page.


Local RCGP Pre-Retirement Seminars:

Wessex Faculty RCGP is committed to providing new innovations and as part of this project, Dr Sonia Barros D’Sa, Innovations Project Lead is organising a series of pre-retirement workshops in Wessex.  The speakers at these workshops will be Dr’s Eileen Gorrod & Vernon Needham.  The first 3 of these workshops will take place on:

*Tuesday 26 April 2016 at the Wessex Nuffield Hospital in Chandlers Ford 

*Tuesday 17 May 2016 at The Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke 

*Tuesday 21 June 2016 at Sarum Road Hospital in Winchester

Perhaps you are due to retire in the next few years or perhaps you have a colleague thinking of retiring?  These workshops hope to provoke thought and stimulate discussion around any questions that you may have around retiring from General Practice.

Places will be limited so in order to book yours, please follow this link; http://www.rcgp.org.uk/system-pages/se
