GPC calls for limit on patients seen per day in manifesto for general practice
The GPC has called for there to be a maximum limit set out for the number of patients GPs can see in a day, with excess patients seen by ’locality hubs’, as part of its action plan published today.
The call is one of a range of actions outlined in a new document outlining a plan to reduce GP workload and solve the recruitment crisis, forming part of its Urgent Prescription for General Practice campaign.
It comes ahead of the Government’s ‘roadmap for general practice’, to be released as early as next week, which will set out a range of actions to support general practice.
GPC chair Dr Chaand Nagpaul said that the document is a result of the ‘clear message’ sent by local GP leaders at the Special LMC Conference in January.
