Scotland Enhanced Induction Programme

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.
