Passionate about primary care
There has been much talk in recent years about a GP crisis in the UK. There are simply not enough GPs; numbers are falling in real terms, while the number of patients, and the complexity of their needs, are increasing. The result is that GPs are demotivated, overstretched and underappreciated.
At Red Whale, we have always taken pride in supporting individual GPs, but now we want to do more to support the whole profession that we are so passionate about.
Our We Love Our GPs campaign is about not only celebrating the vital role of GPs and primary care, but also about making sure that GPs' voices and concerns are heard, listened to, and acted upon.
At the heart of our campaign is our white paper, based on our survey of over 1000 GPs across the UK.
The survey highlights what we, and the majority of those working on the frontlines of general practice have known for some time: the impact of unmanageable workloads has reached a critical point. This is having an effect on retaining and recruiting GPs, and on GPs' wellbeing and ability to perform their duty safely.
Our white paper puts our core findings into context, using data from other reports and surveys, together with the views and experiences of working GPs. It provides the Government, the RCGP, CCGs, NHS England and other decision-making bodies with feedback 'from the front line' - backed up by all the relevant figures.
We are listening to what GPs are saying, and we want those decision makers to listen too, before it's too late.
