The GPC have just launched a major national survey on GP premises. As you will be aware, GPC is calling for a national strategy for GP premises investment and development as one of the key planks of our Your GP cares campaign.
The survey results will inform a high level premises seminar we are holding on July 10th. The seminar, with an opening address from Earl Howe, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Quality, will bring together stakeholders to discuss continuing issues around development, renovation and upkeep of primary care premises, and to propose joint potential solutions.
To inform the debate we are asking each practice in the UK to complete a short survey on their premises situation.
We are also sending the survey to practices via LMCs, to maximise coverage of all practices – you only need to complete it once.One response per practice is all that is required, so practices may wish pass this on to practice managers or a lead GP for completion if appropriate.
Complete the survey now.
I would urge all practices to complete this short survey that will only take a few minutes to complete. This will strengthen our negotiations with government to prioritise the funding and development of GP premises urgently, to address both current and future needs.
In addition we are looking for any case studies of practices that can highlight the constraints and realities of inadequate premises, and how this is affecting practices and their patients, as part of our Your GP cares campaign. You can enter this in the last page on the survey, or respond to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send us your response by Friday 4 July.
