What are your thoughts on General Practice care? (Your GP surgery) The NHS is looking for patients to join their expert discussion groups across England to review current general practice care. If you are interested in having your voice heard please register interest today:

The quality of care provided by general practice (GP surgery) is recognised as being of a high standard. However, the needs of patients’ and their expectations of General Practice are changing and at the same time, local areas are seeking to better integrate their services around patients.

A quality improvement scheme currently exists that enables General Practices in England to earn additional funding, if they meet specific quality standards of care for patients with a range of common long term conditions. NHS England has agreed with the British Medical Association to review the current scheme and identify how the scheme could most effectively support the delivery of good quality care, from a patient perspective.

The NHS are looking to understand the views of you, the patients, in this review and are looking to establish three reference groups in London, Bristol and Leeds. Specifically, they would like to seek views on what makes a good quality GP surgery experience and consider how the current scheme could change to support and recognise this further. The role on this group will involve attending a meeting in January and possibly participating in a further meeting or group telephone call in the spring.

The meetings planned for January 2018 are as follows:

  • London - 15 January
  • Bristol - 18 January
  • Leeds - 18 January

Reimbursement of reasonable expenses will be offered to all those that take part. Register your interest today if you would like your voice heard.
