What the NHSEI package means for general practice - BMA England

NHSEI (NHS England and NHS Improvement), supported by the Government, has published a plan it claims will improve access for patients and support general practice in the current crisis. This has not been negotiated or agreed by GPC England but has been developed by NHSEI and the Government in isolation.

NHSEI package - Our plan for improving access for patients and supporting general practice -14 October 2021

The NHS is gearing up to a very challenging winter, with access to general practice an essential part of winter plans. This short guide, supported by Government, describes a number of further actions (below) that will now be taken by the NHS, Government and partner organisations, to support general practice and improve access including face-to-face appointments with GPs. They include steps to (a) increase and optimise capacity; (b) address variation and encourage good practice; and (c) improve communication with the public, including tackling abuse and violence against NHS staff.
