Do you need more time with your GP?
People are living longer and have more complex health needs. In the UK there now more than 10 million people aged 65 and over.
More people are living with a chronic condition, with many supported in the community by their GP and their practice team. For these patients, the ten minutes available in a standard appointment simply isn't long enough.
There is more demand than ever for GP services - more patients to see, more test results to read, more paperwork. Yet there are still the same number of hours in the day.
Your GP and practice team care about the current situation and want to work with patients and goverment to find solutions and provide a better service.
The BMA is calling for long term sustainable investment in GP services now to:
Attract, retain and expand the number of GP's
Expand the number of practice staff
Improve the premises that GP services are provided from
