Physicians are cautioning that basic practice centers run the risk of breaking under the pressure of “unsustainable” workloads unless the government ramps up the recruitment of medical staff and takes actions to minimize burnout.The Royal College of GPs is calling on the federal government to present an emergency rescue plan to shore up basic practice centers after the pandemic, consisting of recruiting 6,000 more GPs and 26,000 additional support personnel, such as receptionists and nurses, by 2024 as well as decreasing documentation and investing in ₤ 1bn worth of enhancements to facilities and technology.”GP staff get abuse every day over Covid vaccine remindersThe RCGP is alerting that the government is continuing to “considerably miss” its target to train and recruit 6,000 more full-time GPs by 2024. In reality, the profession needs 5,000 new GPs to be trained every year, according to its recovery plan.Meanwhile, the number of fully qualified GPs in England has actually fallen by 4.5% in between September 2015 and March 2021, according to RCGP analysis of NHS data. A third (34%) are planning to leave during this period– a quarter of whom mentioned stress as the reason– which could equate to 14,000 GPs leaving the profession.The five-point action plan also urged the government to offer GPs a more powerful voice in creating care for their local communities and to be more deeply incorporated with the larger health system to lower waste.Recent information from the RCGP and Oxford University shed light on the scale of demand for GP services, with the number of consultations by GPs increasing considering that last summer to reach record levels. The RCGP is predicting this will continue to increase to satisfy the needs of the UKs growing and ageing population.A Department of Health and Social Care representative stated: “The federal government is incredibly grateful for the determined efforts of GPs, who have continued to offer care for all of us when we have health concerns throughout this worldwide pandemic.
