The Trailblazer Fellowship Scheme is an exciting opportunity that aims to support GPs and practices working in areas of health deprivation. This type of healthcare is intellectually stimulating and extremely rewarding, but might also have challenges that can seem daunting early in your career. Being a Trailblazer Fellow will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to work in areas of poverty and is a great way to start to build a portfolio career and develop a sought after special interest.

The fellowships are 12 month fixed term contracts for GPs within their first five years post CCT and will offer a combination of clinical sessions and two paid education and development sessions. In this protected time you will take part in a virtual national education programme relating to health inequalities, learn about local services available for patients with complex health needs relating to deprivation, form a supportive peer group with other Trailblazer fellows and undertake some relevant project work with your practice or PCN. You will also have access to a personal budget to spend on your own learning needs.

There will be three fellowships based within the Mary Potter Health Centre in Hyson Green, Nottingham. The fellowship will comprise of four clinical GP sessions at either:

The fellowships are being co-ordinated locally by the Phoenix Programme but are a HEE initiative.

Please send a CV and a covering letter detailing why you are interested in the Trailblazer fellowship to If you have a preference which practice you want to do your clinical sessions with, please state this in your letter.
