Patients must be told safety is at risk due to GP workload

Comment

It should not be down to a small but highly effective team at Pulse to deliver this message and survey The medical leadership at the RCGP and BMA GPC should have been all over it. One of the best pieces of writing and work I’ve seen in a long time. Time to hold those to account who continue to turn a blind eye to the problems practices face in their area. Each medical director should br surveyed to ask if they feel GP in their area is stretched beyond safe capacity - they have a probity responsibility to respond honestly, and a duty of candour to speak out where they feel patient safety is threatened. Hold the MDs to account who hold GMC registration - you will never get an honest answer from a manager who has no such regulatory responsibility, Time for a NHS managers regulatory body: they must be held to account for turning a blind left eye to the problems while having their right eye looking at the career ladder.
