Welcome to the General Practice Information Point - GPIP.
The purpose of the GPIP is to give you, a member of the General Practice team, access to information, guidelines and training to help you in your day to day role. All of these resources can be accessed through subject specific links and have been provided by subject matter experts.
GPIP is hosted, not owned, by Leeds GP Confederation. It is a resource centre for and by members of General Practice. If you have any queries regarding the content on the website please contact us on [email protected]
The aim of The GPIP, is to bring all our primary care team together in one place. Sharing information and best practice as one resource. I hope GPIP will help you in your day to day work. And that it will save time and become an integral resource for all in General Practice.Sarah O’Donnell
