It’s a GP Practice Thing

What is ‘a GP Practice Thing?’

‘It’s a GP Practice Thing’ aims to raise awareness of how GP practices are working, the range of services offered, and the specialist team members that can help people get the care they need.

The campaign materials were co-created with local patient groups and primary care staff across Bradford and Craven to deliver the most effective messages, design style, community language versions and marketing channels.
