We need to invest in GPs of the future – RCGP

Major investment is needed in general practice in order to keep the NHS sustainable and to ensure it provides value for money, while ensuring safe patient care. This is the call from the Royal College of GPs as it launches its vision for the future of general practice.

The document examines the pivotal role of general practice in a world in which patients will rely more than ever on the skill and compassion of their GP. Developed following extensive consultation with RCGP members, professional bodies and patient groups, it looks forward to a future in which GPs work in new ways to meet growing need and complexity whilst improving patient care and access to GP services.
