GP Access is a company with the simple vision “to transform access to medical care”. Formed in 2011, it grew from a community of over forty pioneering GP practices around England. They wanted to develop and make known their discovery of a better way to provide access for patients to GPs. A directory of practices is available from the office. Read the story of how we were founded.

While independent, we work with NHS organisations for their benefit, as well as for patients, GPs and practice staff. Read how we work to help new practices.

Harry Longman is the founder and chief executive.  An engineer by background, he led research while working in the NHS which uncovered the benefits gained by the inventors and early adopters of the access method. He then brought the

practices together, leading to a conference sponsored by the Department of Health in June 2011, and the mandate to found the company.

We are a member of the NHS Alliance and the European Forum for Primary Care.
