To inform their campaign and policy work, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) commissioned Ipsos MORI to conduct a survey with GPs into their current experience of working in general practice. The survey investigated views of workload, workforce, infrastructure, funding and models of care, and the findings recently fed into RCGP’s wider programme of work to assess progress of the GP Forward View.
There have been two waves of the survey so far, and this, the second wave, was carried out between 27th January and 3rd March 2017 with RCGP members working in England. The survey was conducted online and by phone, with a total of 1,250 GPs taking part (including 1,198 online and 52 via phone).
Results are weighted to be representative of GPs in England by gender, age and region, and the data tables can be found below.
The RCGP report ‘The RCGP assessment of the progress of the GP Forward View’ is available to view on the RCGP website.
