What is the Going Places Network (GPN)?

The Going Places Network (GPN) is a junior doctor network that promotes general practice during hospital training. The network ensures that general practice does not fall off the radar, and keeps junior doctors up to date with the latest information on general practice, including details on the pathways to becoming a Fellow and the breadth of opportunities available in general practice.
