YOUR GP CARES' CAMPAIGN
Support BMA’s ‘Your GP Cares’ campaign
The environment in which GPs are striving to provide services is increasingly challenging. The BMA have recently launched their ‘Your GP Cares’ campaign, to bring the everyday challenges facing general practice more clearly into the public eye, to patients and to the attention of MPs and policy makers. This will be a sustained programme in the run up to the next UK general election.
The success of the campaign is dependent on active involvement of GPs and their patients, supported by the LMC.
We urge you to get involved….
PUT PATIENTS FIRST CAMPAIGN
Campaign aim: The Put patients first: Back general practice campaign is demanding that the governments of the UK increase funding for general practice from an historic low of 8.39% to 11% of the UK NHS budget by 2017. Read more about the crisis facing general practice, and the Put patients first: Back general practice campaign here.
