GP 35 Panel

GP and Healthcare Republic have launched our GP35 panel of 35 GPs aged under 35 years to give younger readers an opportunity to make their voice heard within our pages.

The aim is to provide a sounding board of young GPs to generate instant opinions on issues affecting general practice.

Prime minister Gordon Brown has also endorsed the panel's work saying: 'I welcome all opportunities, such as the GP35 initiative, to give staff a greater voice in the NHS.'

We would love to know what you think are the issues facing general practice - whatever your age.
