General practice is the cornerstone of the NHS - dealing with 90% of all patient contacts for just 8.39% of the NHS budget.
The Put Patients First: Back General practice Campaign is demanding that the governments of the UK increase funding for general practice from the historic low 8.39% to 11% of the UK NHS budget by 2017.
