    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 organization. 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. This is a fantastic source of support for any GP, Physician Association and Clinical Pharmacist.'
