GPs Are On Your Side


This is a message from the BMA (British Medical Association)  regarding General Practice.


We value our patients and know that most patients value us too, especially when they need us regularly. We can deal with most of your health problems, keep you out of hospital and have your best interests at heart. However there is a problem with the mismanagement of the NHS.

Your GP has trained for over 10 years in general medical practice to deal with complex problems, spot serious symptoms and decide when you need specialist help at the hospital. But did you know that we receive just £107.57 per year for each patient, whatever their health needs.

That's just 30p a day for every patient registered with us - less than the cost of an apple.

We want the same things that you do and believe that nobody should struggle to see their GP. We believe that general practice deserves bigger slice of NHS funding so we can train and hire more GPs, deliver the serivces you require and make it easier for you and your family to get appointments to see your GP and practice team.


How can you support your GP practice?

Talk to any election candidate who you come across

When candidates from political parties come knocking at your door, ask them what they will do to save general practice. What will they do so that you can see a GP in a modern local surgery?
