GP Induction and Refresher Scheme Northern Ireland (Revised April 2016)

The GP Induction and Refresher Scheme provides an opportunity for GPs who have previously been on the General Medical Council’s GP Register and on a UK Performers List, to safely return to General Practice following a career break or time spent working abroad.

It also supports the safe introduction of overseas GPs who have qualified in the European Union and other countries. These doctors require a Certificate of Eligibility for GP Registration as well as a licence to practice from the General Medical Council before they can legally enter UK general practice.

A summary of the application process, guidance notes and application forms can be accessed at the Northern Ireland Medical and Dental Training Agency website.
