Podcast: Supporting newly-qualified GPs

Talking General Practice speaks to Dr Emma Wong, chair of the RCGP's first 5 committee about the challenges and opportunities facing newly-qualified GPs.

This week on the podcast GPonline editor Emma Bower speaks to Dr Emma Wong, chair of the RCGP's First 5 committee. The committee represents newly qualified GPs in their first 5 years of practice within the college.

They talk about making the transition from training to independent practice, the support that's available to new GPs and Emma's decision to become a partner straight out of training - which is now becoming a more unusual career step.

Emma also explains why she thinks portfolio careers can benefit general practice and offers some practical advice to those about to qualify.
