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.
