Teach Me GP launched in 2018 as a medical blog dedicated to educating Patients on how to access and make sense of all the information their GP gives them. It contains information and updates on common problems, advice on when to seek help and information on how you can best deal with whatever it is that ails you.

In 2019 it expanded to produce articles and links to key resources aimed at GPs and GP trainees.
