As the founder of GP+ Networking I am thrilled to have been recruited to be an Ambassador for Health Education England (HEE) campaign ‘There is nothing General About General Practice’. I echo the key messages of the campaign
- A career in general practice is challenging – you will have no idea what each day will bring. You will have the opportunity to apply your medical expertise to a wide range of conditions
- You will never stop learning
- GPs are central to individuals, families and communities – you are there for your patients at every stage of their life
- As a GP you have the opportunity to test your skills in a variety of settings – from working in the armed forces to applying your skills in other specialist areas (such as sexual health or oncology) to conducting research that could transform healthcare in the future – the choice is yours.
I see GP+Networking as a way of supporting the energy displayed for establishing extended roles in general practice. I look forward to showcasing all that can be achieved within this wonderfully varied and fulfilling career. Via GP+ we can network and magnify the strength of autonomy we hold from within our individual practices.
Reduce replication, maximise innovation!
