GP Website was first launched in Camden in 2010 by Dr Poppy Freeman, a local GP. Since then, this clinical tool has been constantly improved and redesigned to allow equity of access to information for all GPs and the patients they treat.
In 2015, the website was completely re-developed. This project phase was led by Poppy, with the much-appreciated support of the Camden GP community who contributed extensively to focus groups and surveys. While the main aim of the site is to aid consultations with patients, the tool has been expanded to include the needs of all general-practice staff. The site now includes:
- an education programme linked to the Clarity appraisal toolkit
- a booking system
- practice-management tools
- a forum
- and a quality-alert reporting tool.
We are continually improving the user experience. in 2017, GP Website was awarded the User Experience UK Best Public Sector Award.
In response to requests from GPs, we are now offering this clinical tool to other areas.
