GPC England ran a range of surveys in December 2017, which gave us useful detail and evidence of the problems practice staff and LMCs were facing as a result of the service delivery of PCSE. The response was extremely helpful in our efforts to push NHS England to resolve these issues. There are clearly a large number of on-going problems with this service and we are therefore repeating the surveys to gauge how things are now. This will enable us to influence operational issues on your behalf and give us the hard data to substantiate the anecdotal evidence we also receive.
Please would LMCs, practices and individual doctors take a few minutes to complete the following simple surveys:
Survey of GP practices – please could you forward this to all your practices to complete.
Survey of all GPs including trainees – we would appreciate it if you could share this with your members particularly with locum GPs and trainees.
The deadline for responding to the surveys is noon, Friday 25 October. As you know the greater the response we have to these surveys, the stronger our hand when discussing matters with NHS England. We really appreciate your help on this.
