Improving general practice

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has published A blueprint for building the new deal for general practice in England. This document sets out in the RCGP’s view that urgent and medium-to long-term measures that must be implemented to secure vital improvements to general practice. The Blueprint sets out five overarching actions that must be taken by the new Government to strengthen general practice for the future: invest 11% of the NHS budget in general practice; grow the GP workforce by 8,000; give GPs time to focus on patient care; allow GPs time to innovate; and improve GP premises.
