Innovators Mentorship Programme GP Entrepreneurs

GPs are a key part of care delivery. They understand patient needs, feel the pressures facing primary care and recognise how things can be improved, but until now have had little opportunity to progress these ideas.

Since 2018, ten entrepreneurial GPs with innovative commercial ideas to support the NHS and primary care, were selected to join the Royal College of GPs’ flagship Innovators Mentorship Programme (IMP). 

The selected GPs join the programme with early stage solutions to address some of the burdens on general practice and improve the lives and care of patients.
