Innovators Mentorship Programme


The Innovators Mentorship Programme (IMP) is a flagship programme launched by the RCGP to support entrepreneurial GPs across the UK. Our Innovation Mentors provide support to entrepreneurial GPs with an innovation that addresses an unmet need in primary care (see GP entrepreneur biographies). GP entrepreneurs also work with pilot sites – collaborative organisations that are eager to work with innovators. Through the programme we help GP entrepreneurs to accelerate their innovations and provide professional development in non-clinical skills that are essential to be a successful entrepreneur. 

Applications are now closed!

Applications for the 2019 cohort of GP entrepreneurs and pilot sites are now closed. More information for aspiring GP entrepreneurs and/or pilot sites is provided below. If you have questions or are interested in being part of the programme in the future, please read through these documents and email us to express interest in applying.

Information for aspiring GP entrepreneurs

IMP GP entrepreneurs are driven, ambitious and enthusiastic GPs with a passion to solve problems in general practice. We work with GPs who believe in proactively developing solutions to address unmet needs in primary care and which support the NHS. GP entrepreneurs work in a small cohort and receive mentoring, training, access to a peer group of entrepreneurs, networking and the opportunity to present their innovation on a national platform. Applications are currently closed but for more information read through the document below.

These are collaborative organisations (including federations, clusters and super-partnerships or similar) who are eager to work with our GP entrepreneurs as pilot sites, supporting the testing and evaluation of innovations. Applications are currently closed but for more information read through the document below.
