Joining the IGPR scheme - what are the benefits?

Following on from our recent ‘Joining the IGPR Scheme - what are the different pathways?’ blog, we want to discuss the excellent benefits of joining the NHS England’s International GP Recruitment Scheme (IGPR) with Head Medical.

You will be joining one of the largest employers in Europe: Over the last 70 years, the NHS has transformed the health and well-being of the UK’s population and has become one of the most valuable institutions in the country.

You will be working in one of the world’s greatest cities: London offers a diverse array of lifestyle opportunities for people living there. The city is separated into boroughs, each with their own unique atmosphere and culture – all of which have different housing options, schools and a variety of places to shop and eat. There are excellent transport links giving you access to travel across the city easily and affordably. London is also home to 3 major international airports, making travel overseas very convenient.

Fantastic financial benefits: NHS England will cover relocation costs on top of a gross salary of between £68,000 and £72,000 per year not including the London allowance.  

Extensive support programme: NHS England will assist with preparing for your English language tests (if applicable) and registering with the GMC. 

Head Medical will help with organising transport and finding a home, schools, nurseries and other local facilities as well as help with day-to-day tasks such as setting up a bank account. We have been helping doctors relocate to their dream jobs worldwide since 2008. You will enjoy our full support throughout the process – our team has much collective experience of living and working in overseas locations, and can fully understand what a big decision relocating is.
