Delay in roll-out of patient data sharing programme (GPDPR)
Following extensive lobbying by the BMA and RCGP, Government announced a delay to the rollout of GPDPR, with full rollout now expected on 1 September rather than 1 July.
BMA is now engaged in discussions with NHS Digital and other stakeholders to ensure no additional burden is placed on GPs to facilitate the implementation of this programme and will keep us informed on all next steps that practices will need to take as we approach this deadline. We3 will update our website when we know more
National GP Workforce
The BMA has recently published a review of the national GP workforce which shows that the overall number of full time GPs has seen little growth since 2015.
Between March 2020 to March 2021, the number of older, more experienced GP partners reduced by 546 doctors. The number of patients per practice is 22% higher than it was in 2015, but the GP workforce has not grown with this demand. As a result there are now just 0.46 fully qualified GPs per 1000 patients in England - down from 0.52 in 2015. This is significantly below the average number of physicians per 1000 patients in comparable nations.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept email requests for GP advice or queries. Please use E-Consult or phone into Reception to make a telephone appointment with the GP
Thank you to everyone for your support, patience and gifts during the Coronavirus pandemic. Your support and thoughtfulness is appreciated hugely by us all at the Practice.
