Services designed Specifically
For General Practice

About us

GP View has become an established forum for news and views on all aspects of general practice and how it will develop in the future. Over the past few months, we have been discussing the challenges and solutions that need to be implemented in order for GPs to manage their practices efficiently and to go through the upcoming transformation.

 

Due to the increasing need, we have decided to add a consultancy offer to the passion project that we started last year. Thanks to our varied experience, we can offer support in two areas: to GPs and practices looking to grow and develop, and to individuals and organisations looking to use digital media to communicate and engage effectively.

Our offer

  • General Practice Development
  • Communications Strategy and Digital Media Support
  • Finance
