Why Can’t I See My GP?

6 Jul 2024

10:30 - 11:30

Midland Hotel

How many times have you tried to make a GP appointment, waited patiently on hold for 20 minutes, only to be told that all of the appointments for the day had gone? It’s an experience shared across the country.  

The UK general practice has reached crisis point. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has placed a strain on an already crumbling primary care service, leaving both patients and NHS staff struggling. 

Seventy-six years after the NHS was created, Dr Ellen Welch and Dr Nighat Arif lift the curtain on general practice, both reflecting on the history of the profession and how it’s changed, and looking ahead to what general practice might look like.  

With accounts from GPs across the country, those on the frontline try to answer the question: how did we get here? Is it better overseas? And what can be done to make things better for us all in the future? 

Please note, this venue has changed from the printed programme.
