Video conferences for EU GPs joining the NHS in England
We know that moving abroad can be a tough and challenging decision, but armed with the right information and close to the right people, all these changes can become rewarding for you and your family. This is why VPL Healthcare has created a partnership with NHS and GMC representatives to make the process as easy and as stress free as possible.
Who are the sessions for?

The sessions will use real life situations to discuss the complexities of the NHS, the role of the GP and practical application of GMC guidance.
