RCGP: NHS care must not come second to Brexit in general election

26th April 2017

The Royal College of GPs (RCGP) has called on politicians from all parties to ensure that the issue of patient care is given the proper attention in the run-up to the coming general election.

Launching its own manifesto ahead of the June 8th vote, the college expressed concern that Brexit's domination of the political agenda will mean that critical decisions affecting general practice and the future of patient care could be overlooked or ignored.

As such, the RCGP has outlined a number of priorities that cannot be overlooked, including ensuring the necessary investment in the GP Forward View in England and the hiring of at least 5,000 more full-time equivalent GPs by 2020.

In terms of Brexit, the organisation's top priority is making sure that any EU healthcare professionals already working in the UK are guaranteed their rights to stay, while also making it as easy as possible for doctors from the EU to move to and work in Britain.

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, chair of the RCGP, said: "The future of general practice and the care that we deliver to millions of patients every week is too important to ignore or be left hanging in the balance while our politicians concentrate on Brexit."
