General Practice Strategy Development Survey.

We are currently in the process of developing our General Practice Strategy 2019-2024. The strategy will aim to ensure that system wide work to improve outcomes for local people is fully supported and led by general practice, where this is appropriate, and to ensure that the future of general practice is sustainable in the longer term.

Since August 2018 we have been engaging with GPs, Nurses, Practice Managers and other stakeholders within General Practice, seeking their input to help inform the strategy.

We are now focusing on engaging with the public to understand what your vision is for General Practice, how its services can look not only now, but in the future.

Click here for further information, and to take part in either the professional/stakeholder or public survey.

Both surveys close on Sunday 3 March 2019.
