Induction and Refresher schemes

You should register with the GP NRO as soon as you know you want to undertake an I&R scheme or just need advice about it

Once registered for the scheme the NRO will direct you to the HEE Local I&R Lead. This may take a little while to organise and to arrange a review appointment with the lead, which can be face to face or on the phone or by Skype.

You will get support and advice from your own dedicated account manager with NHS England Cheshire & Mersey team. They will guide you through the Performers list application process and help you secure any financial and practical support you need.

Once the NRO have been informed that you will be taking part in the I&R scheme and have approval from the HEE I&R lead you will be granted access to all the on line learning resources

 If you are taking the LNA route you should only book to take the MCQ when you are ready.  This may be deferred for up to 12 months from date of initial registration to allow you time to prepare for the assessments.  The NRO will review with you your plans at 6 and 12 months to check if you still plan to enter the I&R scheme.

You will find information to guide you through the application process and the scheme on this website, in our FAQs and in our step by step guide.
