Controlling Workload in General Practice
Workload is unsustainable, unsafe and it’s unfair for GPs to be working excessive hours. Workload must be addressed urgently. The BMA is proposing a workload control strategy to enable general practice to improve quality and safety, and to address the recruitment and retention crisis, by agreeing and publicising reasonable safe workload limits, and by providing practices with tools to control workload.
Who we are
We are the local representative committee of NHS General Practitioners. The Local Medical Committee (LMC) is the only elected, representative organisation that represents and provides support and information to General Practitioners (GPs). We represent over 950 GPs working in over 100 practices across Norfolk & Waveney. We exist to represent, advise and support GPs and general practice. We have certain statutory duties and must be consulted on certain issues.
LMCs interact and work with, and through, the BMA General Practitioners Committee (GPC) as well as other branches of practice committees and local specialist medical committees in various ways, including conferences.
Our Members area for GPs and Practice Managers contains a wealth of information and guidance; including Newsflashes, Flyers and Event information and an up-to-date GP Locum list. From this area you can add a practice vacancy and advise us of practice changes including changes in your GP or practice management staffing.
Provided you are a GP, Managing Partner, Practice or Business Manager working in a Norfolk & Waveney constituent practice you can sign up to access this area now.
