Supporting quality in person-centred primary care through professional peer collaboration and support
Liverpool GP Forum was established in 2006 to provide peer support and educational opportunities for GPs in and around Liverpool.
The group seeks to support the development, delivery and evaluation of person-centred primary care through creating opportunities for peer scrutiny, critical reflection and continuing professional development.
The Forum is made up of 240 local GP members, including principals, salaried GPs, locums and GPs in-training.
We meet monthly: typically between 10-20 members with an invited speaker to lead the discussion. The format of meetings varies with the topic under discussion: from presentation of a key topic update with interactive discussion, to facilitated group discussion. Topics are suggested by group members and/or potential speakers.
We meet at Blackburne House. We thank UC24 and Mersey Faculty of the Royal College of General Practitioners for the financial support which allows us to continue to meet here.
Our meetings cover a diverse range of topics from the diagnosis and clinical care of particular problems, to the organisation and management of modern primary care. We also have sessions specifically looking at supporting the health and wellbeing of our members. Click here to see a list of our previous meetings.
