Our Location




General practice is the  cornerstone of the NHS - dealing with 90% of all patient contacts for just 8.39% of the NHS budget.

  • Waiting Times Are Soaring
  • Funding for General practice is Plummeting

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. 

You can also get involved online and read more about the crisis facing general practice and the  campaign by visiting
