Workforce survey summer 2019 initial findings

475 people working across 391 GP practices responded to the survey, representing 32% of the practices in the Londonwide LMCs’ area.

Almost two fifths of responding practices have a GP planning to retire in the next three years, almost half have a vacancy for any staff role and a third have a vacancy for a GP.

94% of responding practices said they belonged to a primary care network (PCN). The survey took place in May and June, prior to the 30 June PCN deadline.
