Manatū Hauora/Ministry of Health (MOH) commissioned a review of the General Practitioner Education Programme (GPEP) funding model. GPEP has been delivered by the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP – the College) through a funding agreement with MOH. This funding agreement was transferred to Te Whatu Ora on 1 July 2022

The specific question addressed through this review is whether the current GPEP contract supports the best outcomes for the recruitment and retention of the GP workforce. The review scope is the extent the GPEP funding model is an effective vehicle to attract registrars to GPEP and to enable a clinically and culturally competent GP workforce across Aotearoa New Zealand.
