The next chapter in the story is about to begin! The wheels of change are turning and the benefit that GP+ Networking brings to primary care on several levels is becoming clear. The growing user base alongside new functionality that provides practical collaboration across primary care means that GP+ Networking can provide real impact and time savings to busy doctors wanting to work better.
The launch of version 2 of the closed access section of GP+ Networking has followed a period of consultation and testing. In addition to version 2 we will be launching a membership for practices that captures quality improvement and protocol sharing for the wider aspects of running a successful practice. This is currently being built but as yet I have not come up with a suitable name! The plan for this is to start in Somerset practices and the be rolled out in the new year.
The new improved GP+ Networking will include the following updates:
- Homepage to include
- all group chat, searchable by extended role
- all new documents, searchable by extended role
- new users to the site
- customised area for your area of interest
- GP+ news and media
- Improved group chat formation
- Varied privacy for group chat from open through to invitation and hidden
- Direct access for partners to populate educational events
An App for improved mobile experience and alerts to new activity will be following version 2 shortly after. The functionality of GP+ Networking really is adapting to what its community demands. Be part of it.
This is a grassroots innovation and it is important that is maintained so all suggestions gratefully received.
