‘Family doctor service on brink of extinction’, says new GP leader
The leader of Britain’s family doctors has warned that GP services are “under severe threat of extinction” because they cannot cope with the growing demand for care. Practices are forcing patients to endure long waits for appointments, and allowing them too little time with their GP, according to Dr Maureen Baker, who chairs the Royal College of GPs.
In an outspoken intervention, Baker claimed that allocating general practice an ever smaller share of the NHS budget was foolish because GP surgeries were “shoring up the rest of the NHS from collapse” by relieving pressure on hospitals.
“General practice as we know it is under severe threat of extinction. It is imploding faster than people realise and patients are already bearing the brunt of the problem,” said Baker, who demanded urgent action to reduce “the huge and historic imbalance in funding”.
She added: “For generations GPs have been the bedrock of the NHS and provided excellent care for patients. But we can no longer guarantee a future for general practice as our patients know it, rely on it – and love it.”
