Rebuild General Practice

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

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. Take a look at the campaign video below and feel free to drop us a line with any questions.

Please help us to help you by being kind to all our staff.

If you have concerns regarding your care or a loved ones, please raise this calm and constructively. This could be through our ‘General enquiries, complaints and complaints’ Klinik tile or by speaking to one of our reception team.
