GPs with extended roles
A network for GPs and potential GPs who want an expanded role. It aims to promote opportunities in General Practice and to empower an established network of GPs.
There is a facebook page that was launched to start interest and discussion that can be found at the following link.
The separate website with some sophisticated functionality to create a really personal atmosphere to gain advice and share ideas will be Fully launched in January 2016
Developed by Cathryn Dillon an ST3 who did plastic surgery before moving to general practice and found it harder than it should be to have skills recognised and find advice about starting up community services.
Cathryn says "I think the future of general practice will have a large proportion of portfolio careers and extended roles delivering care closer to home. I have started developing my website to make it easier for others. I want the site to be there to help us achieve innovative ways of working and give General Practice a bright future!"
