This Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) report calls on the four governments of the UK to each produce a comprehensive plan to support GPs in managing the longer-term effects of COVID-19 in the community.
RCGP says the plans should contain:
- costed proposals for additional funding for general practice
- solutions for how the current GP workforce capacity can manage new and pre-existing pressures
- commitments to continue the reduction in regulatory burdens and ‘red tape’, which has enabled GPs to spend more time on frontline patient care during the pandemic
- a systematic approach for identifying those patients who are likely to require primary care support; and proposals for how health inequalities will be minimised to ensure all patients have access to the necessary post-COVID-19 care.
