Improving Urgent & Same Day Care

Please complete our survey!

The pressures on the NHS and General Practice are currently greater than ever. A combination of increasing demand for urgent and same day care, fewer qualified GPs and locums, and the Government's plans for 8am to 8pm seven day a week General Practice are all contributing to the mounting pressures.

General Practices across Hampshire are looking at ways to work together to meet this demand.

Together with Better Local Care the GP practices in the Waterside area are looking at ways we can work together to meet these demands. It is clear that practices working alone will not be able to meet an 8am-8pm service seven days a week.

We are currently conducting a survey on opinions regarding new models of urgent and same day care. Click here to complete the survey which should take just a couple of minutes.

A copy the recent presentation about the future of General Practice given by Dr Sherwin at our PPG's Open Meeting in April is available to view here.
