The GP Excellence (GPEx) website is your starting place for sharing knowledge, finding information, identifying resources and learning opportunities designed for improvement and development of GP Practices across Greater Manchester.

The programme aims to support and improve Greater Manchester General Practices to enable care for the population by thriving general practice.

We will do this by supporting and developing individuals and GP practices, create positive engagement across the GM system and beyond and create an ‘improvement culture’ across GM General Practice.

The GP Excellence Programme is a partnership between Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and the Royal College of General Practitioners. Read more »
