|The NHS needs you.
To encourage international GPs to come to live and work in England we have developed easier, faster ways to register to practise for GPs trained in Australia from 2007 onwards and a programme of support (including financial help) for all GPs trained in Australia, no matter when you trained.
There are already more than 2,000 Australians working for the NHS. We hope you will come and join them.
GPs in England are the foundation of the NHS. They are usually the first person a patient turns to for help and they deal with a whole range of health problems. They are general experts in the whole field of medicine for adults and children. GPs usually work in practices, often leading teams which include nurses, healthcare assistants, practice
managers, receptionists and other staff. Practices also work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as
health visitors, midwives, pharmacists, physiotherapists, mental health services and social care services.
GPs are also at the heart of developments within the NHS to bring health and care services together and to strengthen the focus on improving the health of populations and preventing ill health. As well as opportunities to practice, the NHS in England also offers GPs the opportunity to lead developments in health services across whole systems.
Many GPs choose to work in England because of the attractive salaries and benefits. But the work offers much more: the chance to extend your clinical experience as part of a team of 1.3 million NHS employees, all of whom are proud to work for a 'national treasure' and many of whom have come to England from across the globe.
You can be working independently in one to three months, depending on your experience.
Once you get in touch with us we will help you through the process - there are no tests or exams and no long and laborious processes to follow. We can guide you through the simplified route developed by the NHS to make your route to the UK quicker and easier. We can also help you find accommodation for you and your family.
This is a unique opportunity which we're proud to offer exclusively in partnership with NHS England, making what has traditionally been a difficult process simple and stress-free. ID Medical will provide an end-to-end service including help with accommodation, transport and transition to the UK.
We've helped hundreds of international Doctors become GPs for the NHS, and are uniquely positioned to help you navigate the route to UK General Practice.
