The GP Support Hub has partnered with the East Anglia RCGP Faculty to launch a Wise 5 Networking Evening.

Senior Doctors have a key role to play in General Practice. As well as passing on what they have learned during their career, ‘Wise 5’s’ can act as an exemplar and an ambassador for the specialty, and benefit patients, the individual doctor, as well as the wider medical community.

Our aim will be to support quarterly events with speakers on key educational topics, chosen by you,  tailored to your clinical learning needs and experience levels.

This will be an opportunity to expand your network, share your knowledge and benefit from peer support with like minded GPs in your locality.
