Patient Care

patientsfirstThe number of patients needing to see their GP is increasing, yet funding for general practice is falling year on year.
This means millions of patients are waiting a week or more to see their GP and the amount spent per patient is in decline.
Many GPs now fear that patient care will be put at risk and 71% are predicting that waiting times will get even worse.
To protect high quality services for all patients, the Royal College of GPs and the National Association for Patient Participation are campaigning for the governments of the UK to increase funding for general practice from 8.39% to 11% of the NHS budget by 2017.
Visit the Royal College of General Practitioner's Put Patients First website to support the campaign to put patients first and back general practice! The campaign is also on Facebook and Twitter.
