Public believe GP workloads are threat to patient care

More than three fifths of the public believe that the sheer volume of patient consultations now being carried out by GPs each day is a threat to the level of patient care, according to a new opinion poll.

The survey, commissioned by the Royal College of General Practitioners, shows that three in five Britons (62%) believe that the number of patient consultations GPs conduct each day – reckoned to be between 40-60 consultations in the majority of cases – is a threat to the standard of care they can provide to patients.
