Summer 2021 workforce survey closes on 24 June

With pandemic capacity issues placing such great strain on London general practice it is more important than ever for us to have broad and up-to-date evidence on the state of the workforce.

Our latest workforce survey closes at midnight tomorrow, so if you are a GP partner or practice manager and your practice has not already provided a submission please help us by doing so now. You should already have an email from Savanta ComRes, our survey providers, in the name of Dr Michelle Drage, which includes a unique link for your practice

The data gathered from previous workforce surveys has been used in a number of ways to support our work advocating for you, including:

  • Obtaining coverage of London’s GP workforce crisis in dozens of articles and reports, including on the front page of a national newspaper.
  • Securing practice visits with MPs and Assembly Members from the three main political parties representing London.
  • Being invited to submit evidence to Parliamentary committee enquiries.
  • Showing commissioners and the other bodies which make up London’s health landscape that GP practices are facing significant workforce issue.
