National Association for Patient Participation


A General Election has been announced for 8 June and we will be there making sure general practice stays top of the political agenda. In April we announced our election manifesto, Six Steps for Safer General Practice, which asks politicians to deliver:

  • At least 5000 more GPs by 2020
  • The promised additional £2.4bn per year in general practice by 2020
  • EU healthcare workers in the UK protected after Brexit
  • GP specialty training extended from 3 to at least 4 years
  • A solution to the rising cost of GP indemnity insurance
  • More nurses, pharmacists and mental health therapists in general practice 

How can you help?
We’ve got lots of ways you can get involved in protecting patient care in your area.
