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.

Dr Richard Marriott


Richard trained in London and having worked there for a few years in general medicine rotations moved to Cambridge. He has been a GP for 28 years and is a partner at the Red House Surgery. He enjoys training GP registrars and teaching medical students.

Dr Duncan Forsyth

Consultant in Geriatric Medicine, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge

Duncan is a highly regarded geriatrician who was integral in the development of the Department of Medicine for the Elderly at Addenbrookes and the regional Parkinson’s Disease service. He is a senior examiner for the DGM and undertakes substantial volunteer work in underdeveloped and underprivileged countries. Now working half time, ten weeks on and ten weeks off which seems a wonderful prelude to retirement!  He is well known for his speeches which are filled with hilarious, and often risqué, observations and anecdotes about his career in medicine, charitable work and other experiences. The perfect person to kick off the Wise 5 group.

Target Group

This programme is being delivered as part of our wider GP Support Hub offer to local GPs in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

This programme is open to Wise 5 GPs and will be delivered in Cambridge.
