Event description

Description

The problem:

GP practices are struggling to recruit new doctors.

Newly qualified GPs are often unsure about committing to a permanent post until they have more knowledge and understanding of the pros & cons.

Training schemes don't always expose trainees to the wide variety of different types of practice they might consider, so how can they get exposure to a variety of practices in a short space of time?

What we can do:

BMA Scotland and RCGP Scotland have devised an innovative solution to the problem using the format of Speed Dating.

Following the successful "GP Speed Dating event " in the West of Scotland in June, which helped practices find a new Partner or salaried GP, the BMA and the RCGP are keen to roll this event out around the main regions of Scotland. The next event is organised for the SE of Scotland.

The aim is to bring GPs together with Practices, in an informal setting, to encourage each side to find out about each other; a bit like Speed Dating! So if you are a GP unsure of your next step or if you are a GP Practice seeking staff, then this event is definitely for you.

Attendees at the Glasgow event said:

“We enjoyed trying something new and selling ourselves!”

“It exceeded my expectations!”

“The format is not something we are used to but it worked well!”

The format:

In advance of the event, participating Practices and GPs will be asked to submit a statement about themselves to the BMA Scotland . We will provide the participating Practices with a list of names and statements of the GPs attending. The GPs attending will only be given the names and statements of the Practices attending, they will not receive other GP statements.

On the day there will be a 'round robin' of 10 minute ‘dates’ where every GP will meet every Practice. Our aim is for both sides to find the perfect match.

After the speed dating chats are concluded, each party will advise the BMA, in confidence, if they would like to follow up a date. A couple of days later, the BMA will supply contact details to both parties then the remainder is up to you.
