Here at The Atherstone Surgery we are part of a campaign called Rebuild General Practice . 

GPs and patients are on the same side and want the same – a general practice that is fit for purpose. However, in recent times, GPs have been pitted against their patients in the media and by politicians. The Rebuild General Practice campaign wants to unite patients and GPs to defend the profession.

The Rebuild General Practice campaign is a group of GPs from across Great Britain, calling on the Government to address the issues in our profession.

General practice has been in a crisis for many years. This is down to decades of neglect from successive governments and it is putting patient safety at risk.

We know that currently:

  • There are 6 million more patients on the books
  • GPs carry out 400 million annual appointments
  • And 90% of NHS contact is in primary care

As GPs we want our patients to know – we’re on your side. We want to be there for you and your family whenever you need us. But this is getting harder and harder.

If you want your GP to be there for you and your family, you can help us. To find out more about this campaign and how you can help please watch the campaign video and visit the website below:
