It's very easy to feel isolated working in the general practice setting - but being a member of GPSA's community of practice means never being alone or unsupported.


We may be small, but that's what makes us nimble... And it helps that we have a passion for supporting the people committed to high quality supervision for tomorrow's GPs.
