Severn “GP Careers Champions” Mentorship Programme

Request for Mentorship / Taster days


Severn GP Careers Champions has been set up to facilitate junior doctors who are interested in GP to have conversations with enthusiastic GPs and GP trainees about what the career can offer. If required they can also arrange taster days.

Whether you are in your Foundation years, abroad, taking time out of training or in another Specialist Training Programme, we have a Champion for you. Champions are a self-selected group of GPs and GP trainee volunteers across Severn who are enthusiastic about their career and who want to support others who are considering it. This can be through conversations by email, telephone or Skype, face-to-face meetings, or taster days.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, if you are considering General Practice and would like to be put in touch with a “GP Careers Champion” then please fill out the Application Form and send it back to . We will endeavour to match you to someone in your area with similar interests, who has agreed to offer the type of mentorship you request. Once you have been matched with a Champion, it will be up to you to get in touch with your Champion to arrange the discussions / meetings at a mutually convenient time. Once you have finished we ask that you get in touch so we can get feedback from you and issue certificates to you and your Champion.

Please note that this programme is for you to get a flavour of what a career in GP can be like. The Champions have a variety of backgrounds and may not know finer details about the application / training process etc. If you have any questions that your Champion is unable to answer (eg about the application timeline / process) then please contact

Thank you and I hope you find the process useful!
