An Introduction to GP+ Networking- A space for innovation

GP+ Networking stands for a better way of GPs working together and provides a refreshing space for innovation away from the bombardment of emails.

As the membership of GP+ Networking gathers momentum we are continuously developing the site based on the feedback of our early adopters.

The introduction to GP+ Networking video was viewed on Facebook 1300 times in 48hours! Hits to the homepage were over 1000 last month. This is a great encouragement but we know that we have to hit a critical membership mass.

Strong membership will allow the 14955763_1354874164553048_4520353774883868848_n-2project to reach its potential as being the ‘go to site’ for all your professional development needs.

Remember that ‘extended roles’ are clinical and non clinical. A new extended role is ‘quality improvement’. If you haven’t selected it on registration and would like to please edit your profile.

Cathryn has big plans to build further helpful  functionality based on the bedrock of the networking site but first things are first.

The site is currently being used to find people of similar interests, run group chats based on those interests, find events and connect with those also attending.

 

 

Current feedback

“I’m an ST3 in Paeds but considering changing to GP. Thought I’d use your site to give me an idea of the additional roles some GPs take on”

“I was really glad to discover another GP on this site with a special interest in an area of clinical work that has always appealed to me. Finding colleagues that share a similar enthusiasm has given me options to develop my career in that direction.”

“All my relevant documents are sat on my profile”

Early adopters

We have a membership of 130 following our soft launch in August and 1300 likes on Facebook. We want to gather as much feedback as possible from our membership and ensure that Cathryn’s plans are prioritised to the needs of the membership.

Cathryn will be creating a group chat through the site for the most enthusiastic early adopters to shape GP+ Networking.

If you would like to be a part of that group and learn more then please contact her via  her profile ‘connect’ button.

GP Trainees to Innovate

GP+ Networking

Looking forward to traveling to Peninsula deanery to speak at GPST induction with the aim of enthusing other GP trainees to innovate. Never underestimate your contribution to change. Fresh eyes are invaluable to the process of quality improvement from within established general practice. Those who are immersed within the job may find it difficult to see the possibility for improvement and I am sure will always welcome alternative suggestions. If there is a reason your idea isn’t suitable then you will learn from it. Your effort is appreciated. If there is no reason then you take your first step to making it better.

Fear will only stagnate progress!
