Bright Ideas to make your job better and easier

We want GPs innovative work to be recognised, celebrated and shared; we hope this will inspire other GPs to both take up practices which have been successful elsewhere and encourage them to try new ideas themselves.

Our most recent Bright Ideas: 

If your GP practice is using an innovative model we want to hear from you!

We would like you to send in a short piece of writing (500-1000 words) explaining the experience your practice has had in adopting an innovative model and the benefits and learning that have been taken from this.

We are keen to promote innovative models which help to reduce workload and increase efficiency within GP practices.

If you have an example of innovative practice that you would like to be shown on our Bright Ideas page, please send the short piece of writing using this template and any relevant images and links to Brightideas@rcgp.org.uk.

Please let us know what you think of the Bright Ideas we are sharing by emailing Brightideas@rcgp.org.uk.

We are partnering with The Academy of Fabulous Stuff to help share innovative ideas from primary care. Take a look to see how simple ideas can make powerful changes to your daily life.
