 Before offers can be made you will be required to provide three fully completed clinical references. If your referee is unable to do this through the electronic referee portal then you will be required to bring a hard copy with you to the SAC. You may wish to start preparing for this in advance by downloading the structured reference form from the GP recruitment website (https://gprecruitment.hee.nhs.uk/Resource-Bank) and distributing it to your nominated referees in good time to avoid delays.

Guidance from the National Recruitment Office which manages GP recruitment advises that programmes will be allocated to successful candidates depending upon ranking after Selection Centre, geographical or programme preferences as indicated by applicants and  the availability of a suitable vacancies.
