GPs are on your side – BMA Campaign

Posted on:

You have probably noticed that something is wrong. Look at the difficulty you have in getting an appointment at your local surgery. When you do get through, it may not be an appointment with a GP at all. Have you lost your regular family doctor? You are not alone. The past decade has seen us lose far too many surgeries and thousands of GPs. GPs are on your side.

Did you know?

In the last 5 years GP practices have lost funding worth over £660 million. If general practice received a fairer share of NHS funding we could:

  • Train and hire more GPs
  • Deliver the services you require
  • Make it easier to get the appointments you need

We believe general practice deserves a bigger slice of NHS funding so we can train and hire more GPs, deliver the services you require and make it easier for you and your loved ones to get appointments to see your GP and practice team.

GPs want the same things that you do. We believe nobody should struggle to see their family doctor.

What can you do to help?

Spread awareness.

Send an email or letter to your elected MP after the election on the 4th July, and ask them to prioritise funding for General Practice.
