The GPIFN Website
The GP Infant Feeding Network (UK), also known as GPIFN, has developed this website as a clinical resource for General Practitioners (GPs) working in the UK. The website was developed as an independent, voluntary project by UK GPs with assistance and input from colleagues working in infant feeding, maternity and early years. We hope the website supports our GP colleagues in the provision of quality clinical care for families.
The resources linked and signposted within are a selection from the great many available, chosen by GP members of GPIFN due to their specific usefulness to practicing GPs in the UK. We acknowledge that there are many resources available to support infant feeding and welcome suggestions for the addition of materials which will be of specific interest to Primary Care professionals.
GPIFN welcomes constructive suggestions for additions or updates, via our dedicated Website Feedback page. The website will be updated periodically at which point additions or changes will be considered.
If you would like to make contact with the GPIFN Administration regarding matters unrelated to the website, or if you require a response to comments about the website please use the form below.

Please do not use this form to request medical advice for individuals. Members of the public in need of medical advice or help with infant feeding issues should consult their own healthcare professionals as appropriate (for example their Midwife, Health Visitor, Practice Nurse or GP), call NHS 111 or search the NHS Choices Website which has a number of pages with advice on infant feeding issues and breastfeeding support. The National Breastfeeding Helpline (0300 100 0212) is open every day of the year from 9:30am to 9:30pm.
