GPC UK held its meeting on Thursday 14 September. At that meeting GPC UK:

· Received an update from policy leads and GPC England executive
· Discussed the results and next steps regarding the survey of GP practices in England on collective list closure
· Received updates from each of the devolved nation chairs
· Discussed the latest issues regarding indemnity
· Discussed the development of the online GP market
· Received an update from the sessional's subcommittee regarding pensions and capita
· Clarified since the publication of their survey results that this sounded a clear warning signal that the government could not ignore about the need to urgently address the incredible pressures bearing down on general practice. It is shocking that a single practice should be put in the position of having to consider asking NHS England to either temporarily or permanently close its patient list because it does not have the resources or staff to deliver safe care to patients. The decision by seven practices in Folkestone, alongside a growing number of others around the country, to apply for list closures demonstrates how real this problem is
· Confirmed that it will use the survey to lobby the government for urgent action to address the crisis facing the profession ahead of the LMC England conference in November

The next meeting of GPC England will take place on Thursday 16 November 2017 and the next GPC UK will take place on Thursday 15 March 2018.
