What is a GP ambassador?

GP ambassadors are a part of our GPN — a network of prevocational doctors with a passion for general practice — these Ambassadors are dedicated to developing GPN in their hospital and are a point-of-contact for other prevocational doctors wanting to know more about general practice.

When to contact your GP ambassador:

  • answers to questions about general practice during hospital rotations
  • network and touch base with another prevocational doctor.

 

Become a GP ambassador
