Quoted from the Giant Health Event Newsletter (2018)
999111 was launched in 2016 using WhatsApp as a platform to help connect Locum GPs with Practices for free. It was started by myself at a time when I was transitioning from being a GP Partner to a Locum GP.
Over time the network grew to over 5000 members including 3000 GPs. Following demand from GPs, Practices and other healthcare professionals for more options and functionality the idea for the Primary Care Jobs App was born and came to fruition in Dec 2020.
Three active Facebook groups were also started along the way to help connect colleagues with one another as well as experts who could help in both their professional and personal lives.
If you have a problem and if no one else can help... please get in touch! I usually try and help by utilising the 999111 network.
I value the support everyone has given in spreading the word about this service. This has helped to keep the costs to a minimum. The aim is to raise some funds from sponsors to cover these costs in the future.
