Gloucester GPs credit primary care network with 100,000 extra appointments

GP practices in Gloucestershire are working together to provide 100,000 more appointments for patients.

The extra appointments across the county’s 75 practices will be mainly provided by GPs and nurses over the next year, but increasingly practices expect to see new staff including clinical pharmacists, paramedics, mental health workers and physiotherapists relieving pressure on GPs and providing extra capacity.

The county’s practices are organised in 16 primary care networks.
