ICGP Urgent Action Request

The Irish College of GPs has issued the Department of Health with an urgent action request to increase the number of general practice trained doctors. The ICGP has stated that Ireland is currently experiencing a severe GP workforce shortage and workload crisis that is negatively affecting the provision of timely, high-quality care to patients.

A new report by the ICGP and the Association of University Departments of General Practice in Ireland (AUDGPI) calls for funding for placements for medical students in general practice. It says if more students see the valuable work done by GPs more will choose it as a career. It is also calling for more links between GP practices and universities with opportunities for general practitioners to develop academic careers.

Doctor consulting with a patient

Although this is a great start to ensure more Family Doctors are vocationally trained in Ireland, the fact is this training takes 4 years to complete and will not solve the urgent demand that is ever increasing on a weekly basis.

So now more than ever is a great time to choose to relocate to Ireland to work as a General Practitioner or Family Doctor, as the salary rate for permanent roles is ever increasing as well as Locum positions.

Relocate with Clarity:

  • IMC registration support
  • Interviews and contracts before relocation

Benefits on offer:

  • Paid Holidays, up to 6 weeks
  • 10 National Holidays
  • Maternity Leave
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • IMC registration paid
  • Indemnity cover paid
