    Primary Care Peer Mentoring

    All clinicians in primary care are invited to access our fully funded, nationally recognised peer mentoring scheme, which has been offering support and career guidance to colleagues since 2018. This provides one-to-one support for individuals who would like to have a confidential discussion about a range of personal and professional topics. This may include:

    • transitioning into primary care after training,
    • exploration of portfolio careers,
    • personal development opportunities,
    • preventing burn-out,
    • quality improvement,
    • time management,
    • health and wellbeing concerns,
    • business skills,
    • or anything else!

    Each mentee has access to up to 12 hours of mentoring over 12 months, with the frequency and length of sessions negotiated between the mentor and mentee depending on individual requirements.

     

    Who is providing the mentorship?

    The mentors are experienced clinicians from a range of professional groups, and mentees can select their preferred mentor regardless of role or location. Sessions can be carried out in a mutually agreed venue or online.  See the attached mentor profiles here.

    Why are we providing this?

    There is good evidence that peer support and mentoring is an effective way for colleagues of all professions to manage a range of issues. This ultimately contributes to achieving a smoother transition into General Practice, feeling more supported, confident and able to make decisions about your career and managing your working life. The mentorship programme is there to ultimately to support you to get the best of your career in primary care and enjoy working, staying and developing your career in the Black Country.

     

    Mentees’ experience

    'Mentoring was initially recommended to help develop my leadership and management skills as my career was progressing and becoming salaried partner for a large organisation. At this early stage of my GP career, it was great to be able to discuss my career aims and how best to achieve these in the most realistic timescale.'

    'I felt I needed support while I started my career after qualification. I had three face-to-face sessions with my mentor where I had guidance and support. I felt a regular mentor is needed for anyone who is newly qualified.'

    'I found my mentor extremely supportive at a challenging time. We were able to discuss clinical work, managing workload, as well as expectations and negotiations between an employer and employee.’
