We encourage learning in the broadest sense including the wider aspects of general practice and encouraging reflective practice and continuing professional development.

The successful applicant would be joining a wider team for General Practice in North West London working towards developing the General Practice network as a whole and contributing to key themes as set out by Health Education England.
