Business of GP

The above is an infographic video on the Business of General Practice. It is aimed at everybody, including all patients, and also GP teams.

This video is not a short vox pop job. Explaining General Practice isn’t easy. It’s vastly more complex than simply ‘it’s rubbish, I just can’t get an appointment’. But if you are interested in understanding why things are so difficult, and want to see behind the political soundbites, then we strongly encourage you to spend some time learning more about General Practice. After all, you never know when you might need to make use of it.
