The deadline for responses to the local version of The NHS National Review of Access to General Practice has now been extended to February 29th so don’t miss out.
The aim of this is to make it easier for people to see their GP at times to suit them and reduce unwarranted variation in experience.
This is part of the wider NHS vision set out in the Long-Term Plan to include:
- improving access to patient requested pre-bookable and same-day general practice appointments with a view to reducing variations in waiting times;
- more simple point of contact for out of hospital care including when practices are closed or unavailable and to improve urgent care services in the community;
- looking at workforce and workload to make the best use of the available people and resources to improve the wellbeing of the workforce, reduce workload pressures and improve services for patients
