An Important Service Announcement For Our Patients.

General practice has been in a crisis for many years. This is down to decades of neglect from successive governments which is now putting patient safety at risk.

As GPs we want our patients to know – we’re on your side.

We want to be there for you and your family when you need us. But this is getting harder and harder…

This announcement contains important information about the pressures General Practice is facing across the UK which may mean that access to GP services and wait times may deteriorate in the coming months.

If you want your GP to be there for you and your family, you can help us. Take a look at the campaign video at the bottom of this page and write to your MP demanding that NHS GP services receive the funding urgently needed NOW to stabilise General Practice.
