The Targeted Enhanced Recruitment scheme was launched in 2016 and offers a £20,000 salary supplement to attract doctors to enter general practitioner (GP) speciality training in parts of the country where there have been consistent shortages of GP trainees. The scheme is open to GP trainees committed to working their three years of specialty training in areas identified by the GP National Recruitment Office as having the hardest to recruit to training places in England. 238 trainees have entered the scheme so far. 265 places have been made available in 2018.

Places were available on the scheme in Hereford and Worcester in 2017 and further places have been made available in 2018.
