The Scotland GP Enhanced Induction Programme supports the safe introduction of GPs who have qualified outside the UK and have no previous NHS GP experience. These doctors require a Certificate of Eligibility for GP Registration (CEGPR) as well as a licence to practise from the GMC before they can legally enter UK general practice.
GPs who qualified overseas and have never been a member of RCGP but hold CEGPR, who are on the Scotland Enhanced Induction Programme, will be entitled to one year Associate Membership for free. This includes all the benefits of Associate Membership except the hard copy of the BJGP, which will be available electronically. All you need is proof of registration on the Scotland Enhanced Induction Programme.
This programme provides an opportunity for GPs from the European Union and International Medical Graduates with a Certificate Confirming Eligibility for GP Registration (CEGPR) to UK General Practice with no previous (post qualification) GP work experience in the NHS to become inducted in UK General Practice in preparation for working as a GP in Scotland.
