GP Mentoring

STW GP Mentoring Service

Confidential Mentoring for Shropshire Telford & Wrekin GPs, provided by trained GP mentors who are locally based

Mentoring can be a really positive experience for GPs and can deliver a number of personal and organisational benefits including:

  • increased productivity and better time management
  • personal and professional development
  • increased job-related wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence
  • better work-life balance
  • preparation for the future and heightened career aspirations

Mentoring is available, free of charge, for any STW GP and including:

  • newly-qualified GPs on the Fellowship scheme
  • new partners on the New to Partnership Payment scheme
  • locums who may need support to move into salaried roles
  • mid-career GPs making career choices including deciding to take on a partnership role
  • GPs thinking of returning to the profession
  Your mentor will: 
  • hold full registration and a licence to practise with the General Medical Council (GMC)
  • meet the requirements for remaining on the NHS England GP Performers List and report to NHS England any concerns that might affect your status on the National Medical Performers List
  • not be subject to interim suspension under section 41A of the Medical Act 1983
  • currently be working at least three clinical sessions per week 
  • be a trained mentor, part of a group and receiving supervision
  • be matched to you - if you require an out of area mentor, this can also be arranged


We have two GP Mentor Leads for our area: Dr Melanie Thompson and Dr Rachel Taylor.
