General Practitioner with an Extended Role (GPwER)

A General Practitioner with an Extended Role is a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.

A General Practitioner with an Extended Role (GPwER) is a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER who undertakes, in addition to their core general practice, a role that is beyond the scope of GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER training and membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners and requires further training.

There is no national standard accreditation for General Practitioners with Extended Roles (as at Autumn 2019) with the exception for those working in dermatology.

For further information on General Practitioners with Extended Roles, see the Royal College of General Practitioners  website at: General Practitioners with Extended Roles.
