URGENT PRESCRIPTION FOR GENERAL PRACTICE
General practice is facing some of its toughest challenges, with workload and patient demand at unprecedented levels. The BMA's "Urgent Prescription for General Practice" campaign shines a light on these issues and provides advice and support for practices on how to deal with them. The campaign is about:-
- safe manageable workload
- more time with patients
- increased practice funding
- more staff to support GPs
- less box ticking
The BMA is highlighting the challenges facing general practice across England and Wales and offering the solutions they feel are necesssary to government.
Using the responses from 3,000 practices following a survey undertaken in December 2015 the BMA has developed a "heatmap" which helpts to illustrate the impact on general practice in England and Wales.
As well as raising these issues nationally, the BMA is also offering practical support and advice to GPs. They are sending all GP practices a resource pack of tools to help manage workload and to work more collaboratively locally. The resource pack also provides advice on how to raise the issues practices are facing with local politicians and the local press.
