Policy and campaigns

Our Policy and Campaigns team works to influence policy and hold Governments to account across the UK. We advocate on behalf of GPs, their wider teams and patients at the highest levels, and promote the crucial role of general practice in the NHS.

We promote the tireless work of GPs and campaign to ensure that all patients can receive high quality care when they need it.

We lead the conversation around health policy with our policy work and are campaigning for the best deal for general practice from the Prime Minister's 10-year plan for the NHS.

We have secured key campaign victories including:

  • Campaigning for additional funding for general practice across all four nations.
  • Influencing governments to tackle the GP workforce crisis and securing promises from governments to deliver 5000 additional GPs and 5000 additional staff in England, along with 800 more GPs in Scotland, and increased the number of training places in Northern Ireland to 111 a year. 
  • Successfully lobbying for the creation of a State-backed Indemnity Scheme in England and Wales to tackle the rising costs of indemnity.
  • Secured the removal of doctors and nurses from the Tier 2 Visa cap.
