Local Workforce Issues – A Future Model?

Much has been written in recent months about the crisis in general practice due to difficulties in recruiting to and retaining the workforce, changing working patterns, increasing care demands and bureaucracy in the system of care. The debate has appeared in the popular press. Whilst rarely out of the headlines or journals, there is arguably more ‘heat than light’ in identifying ways forward. This lack of clarity prompted the Southampton GP Education Unit and Wessex LMCs to jointly commission an exploratory study to seek the experiences of GPs in the locality of working in general practice today, and ask them to look ahead to the future.

This paper is detailed work looking at the survey results followed by interviews with a number of GPs to explore themes. A proposal is then made of a future career model. This article has been published in a more concise form in the BJGP October 2015. http://bjgp.org/content/65/639/e711
