Thank you for taking the time to complete our December 2021 workforce survey at time when practice teams were so overstretched. We had 327 responses from 277 individual member practices, of Londonwide LMCs’ 1,152 member practices that were invited to participate in the research, this represents a response rate of 24%.
Other headline figures include:
- Almost two-thirds of responding practices have a vacancy for one or more members of staff.
- Two-fifths of responding practices have one or more GPs planning to retire in the next three years.
- 94% of practices report abuse of practice staff over the last year.
We will share further details of the findings in our next newsletter.
