GP practices are the bedrock of our healthcare services. Across Grampian we are working together to deliver the services you need.
Over the last few years GP practices have seen a huge increase in the number of people who need care and support. At the same time is has got harder to recruit new GPs, along with other vital staff.
Practices have changed and now have larger teams made up of many different professionals - for example you may have had an appointment with a highly qualified Advanced Nurse Practitioner or seen a Physiotherapist to help with back pain. These new 'multi-disciplinary' teams are of great value and have helped with the increase in demand - but the demand keeps growing.
We know some of you have real concerns about accessing community services. You might be worried help and support will not be easily available when you need it. The NHS, the health & social care partnerships, and GPs themselves are committed to building on the foundations we have; we need your help to really understand how we can move forward to a brighter future. Thank you for taking the time to fill in this short survey.
