GPs everywhere have faced huge challenges over the past year or so and continue to do so. In London, GPs are looking for ways to face these challenges and make improvements to the service they are providing.
This Wednesday (3, September), the BLF will be meeting with GPs from across London to discuss a new set of standards, which will set out what services patients can expect to receive from their GP practice in future. The meeting will focus around three key areas:
•Accessible care – ensuring that you can book appointments easily, at the time you want and with the doctor or nurse that you want.
•Co-ordinated care – all of the people involved in your care should work together
•Proactive care – preventing treatable conditions and helping you to make healthy choices
Do you have a view on any of these areas of care? It is really important to us that we represent your views and opinions at this meeting so please tell us what you think.
It’s fantastic that GPs are taking these steps to improve care and that they’ve asked the BLF to be involved. I hope you agree that this is a great opportunity to help them get it right. I look forward to hearing your ideas on this topic
