Increasing GP workforce would reduce premature deaths, study finds


That's good to know. I am preparing a plan for my practice to ensure we deliver the minimum contractual number of appointments and stop all unnecessary work like joint injections, family planning consultations, minor surgery etc. All excess urgent appointments will be directed to the WIC. This will ensure we can remain viable. We are a locally high achieving practice, but in a deprived area.
