RCGP: GP Patient Survey results 'testament to the great efforts' of practice teams, says RCGP

GP Patient Survey results 'testament to the great efforts' of practice teams, says RCGP

"This truly is testament to the great efforts and dedication to patient care being shown by GP practice teams across the country. It highlights the fact that patients value general practice greatly, and that urgent steps need to be taken to shore up our service, so that we achieve similar high levels of satisfaction in future years.

"GPs and our teams are performing well, in the best interests of patients, in incredibly difficult circumstances. Our workload has escalated in recent years, both in volume and complexity, but the share of the NHS budget our service receives is less than it was a decade ago, and GP numbers are falling.

"But patients are still waiting too long for a GP appointment, and too many are not getting an appointment when they want one. As well as being frustrating for patients, and GPs, this is concerning as it means patients might not be getting the treatment they need in the early stages of their condition – and their conditions will potentially become more serious.

"The plain truth is that existing GPs and our teams are working to absolute capacity and we just don't have enough GPs to offer enough appointments. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has identified Workforce and Prevention as two of his top priorities - if he is serious about tackling the GP workforce crisis, and keeping patients out of hospital where care is far costlier, it is essential that the government invests properly in general practice.

"General practice is the lifeblood of the health service – and today's survey results show that patients value our service highly. The College believes that at least £14.5bn a year is necessary for general practice – an extra £2.5bn a year on top of what has already been promised by NHS England as part of the GP Forward View – so that we can continue to deliver the care our patients need and deserve."

Dr Bawa-Garba case: RCGP response

"The case of Dr Bawa-Garba has drawn attention to the enormous pressures that doctors and their teams are currently operating under in the NHS. While Dr Bawa-Garba is not a GP, the implications for general practice are significant as we work largely on our own, seeing the greatest number of patients on a daily basis in the health service, without effective mechanisms to control our increasing workload.

"Patients need good, safe doctors, and it is essential to recognise that safety concerns extend to the doctor as well as the patient, and that the morale and wellbeing of the medical workforce has a direct impact on the frontline delivery of patient care.

"In order to continuously improve, doctors need the freedom to reflect openly and honestly on the care that they deliver. We must ensure that supportive systems are in place for GPs and our teams, and indeed all doctors and health professionals working in the NHS, to encourage a culture of openness and learning from errors, not a culture of blame and shame.

"Today, we must remember Jack Adcock, the child who died, and his family.

"The entire NHS must now unite and work constructively with the GMC to restore the confidence that has been lost and shape the future of medical practice in our NHS for the benefit of patients and the health professionals who work within it."

Better information sharing needed when patients are discharged from hospital, says RCGP Wales

Dr Martin O'Donnell, RCGP Wales Vice-Chair, said:

"Patient discharge arrangements are a common source of frustration for patients, and they can be frustrating for GPs as well. When they leave hospitals patients are not discharged from care, rather their care is transferred back to primary care.

"Good information sharing can ensure patients experience continuity of care even when they're seeing different healthcare professionals. When a patient leaves hospital GPs need to have the right type of information, particularly around medication and any significant developments during the stay. Often this isn't the case.

"Information also needs to be transferred in the right way; it shouldn't be a surprise that electronic discharge delivers improved outcomes. It's further evidence of the NHS being held back because of a lack of IT and technology.

"The report was also clear that communication between hospitals and general practice needed to improve. RCGP Wales was fully supportive of the recent Academy of Medical Royal Colleges Wales report on this topic, and were pleased to see it referenced here."
