GP practice list closure ballot

The General Practice Forward View, published in April 2016, sets out NHS England’s strategy to support general practice over the next five years. While it includes proposals aimed at helping practices to become more resilient and sustainable, grassroot GPs and LMCs are clear that delivery has been inconsistent across the country, with many practices not seeing any tangible improvements.

Earlier this year, the Conference of LMCs passed the following motion:

That conference believes that the GP Forward View is failing to deliver the resources necessary to sustain general practice and demands that GPC ballot GPs as to whether they would be prepared to collectively close their lists in response to this crisis.

As a result, GPC England has balloted practices as to whether GPs in England are prepared to collectively close their practice lists. The ballot closed on 10 August and the results are currently being analysed.

If you have questions about the ballot please check our FAQs or contact [email protected].
