Government's GP recruitment data found to be 'seriously flawed' as GPC calls for withdrawal


It also depends on the definition of "Under Doctored". We have around 1300 patients per GP, yet our GPs are working far more hours than full time. That's because the population in areas of high deprivation require up to 3x as many GP consultations/1000 patients as population in affluent areas. We're under-doctored. GP practices in more affluent areas such as Kent may be comfortable with 2500 patients/ GP. Let's understand this better
