Supporting London GPs under pressure

Meeting the needs of a growing and changing capital city can be challenging for GPs. We examine those challenges in two practices and look at the support available through the General Practice Resilience Programme.

GPs do a fantastic job in rising to the challenges of supporting the healthcare needs of a growing and changing capital city. But workload pressures are a concern for a number of practices in London.

Here we consider those challenges in two practices, and look at the support available to them through the General Practice Resilience Programme.

This means that GP practices and their staff can influence local programmes to ensure they meet their individual and collective needs and challenges.

This year, we’re investing around £4m in the General Practice Resilience Programme — offering support to 321 individual practices and 44 groups of practices. We expect more practices to take up offers of support as the programme continues over the next two — three years.
