Coaching is a safe, confidential, enabling and developmental relationship which is tailored to the specific needs, style and context of the coachee.


The Scottish Government has funded 100 places for coaching for GPs working in Scotland. The coaching service is confidential and has no association with any form of assessment or performance management.

The service will be managed by the NHS Education for Scotland Executive Coaching Service. The coaches are all professionally qualified and experienced in coaching individuals from all professions within the health service.

GPs will be offered four x 2-hour coaching sessions to be taken before end of March 2019.  Sessions can be arranged to suit the individual GP in terms of both timing and venue.

GPs using this service will be asked to share some information about themselves for administration purposes and to contribute to the evaluation of the service. All personally identifiable information will be held in strict confidence by the NES coaching team and will not be shared with any other parties. The content of coaching sessions will remain strictly confidential between the individual GP and their coach.
