Last quote by Helen Stokes-Lampard

General practice is under intense resource and workforce pressures, and we desperately need more family doctors practising in the UK, but not through the back door, and not at the expense of the trust and confidence patients have in their GP.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Helen Stokes-Lampard came from an article called Viagra prescriptions on NHS triple in 10 years as stigma fades: “Buying medication online might seem convenient, and it might be attractive to patients who are embarrassed to discuss medical problems with their doctor in person, but it isn't without risk. Firstly, there is no way for someone to know what they are buying is what they think it is, and this in itself can have profound consequences. There are a number of medical reasons why the drug would not be prescribed – for example, if a patient has a heart or liver problem, or if they have low blood pressure.”.

We know that our patients have great trust in their family doctor – according to the last GP Patient Survey, over 90 per cent had trust and confidence in the last GP they saw - so it's understandable that some patients are willing to wait longer for an appointment with their preferred GP.feedback

These drugs can be effective in providing short-term pain relief for some patients – what is important is that any decision to prescribe is based on a patient's individual circumstances and medical history, and is regularly reviewed.feedback

It is also not the case that just because face-to-face surgeries might not be taking place, patient care isn't being delivered via telephone or online consultations, or by GPs making home visits - and when a practice is temporarily closed, adequate cover arrangements will be put in place. We agree with the report that forcing GPs to work 8am-8pm, seven days a week, regardless of patient demand makes little sense and is not cost-effective - and we reiterate our concerns that this will simply detract from the routine five-day service we are able to deliver for patients.feedback

Apr 26 2017

GPs and our teams are working flat out to deliver more patient consultations than ever before - recent research has shown that our workload has risen 16% over the last seven years. The fact that patients are finding it difficult to make an appointment is not because we are not working hard enough, it is because we don't have the resources and workforce necessary to deliver the care and services our patients need and deserve.feedback

Despite successful efforts to recruit more family doctors, and make it easier for people to return to practice after a career break or period working abroad, we are still haemorrhaging highly trained, experienced GPs at an alarming rate. General practice is currently facing intense workload and resource pressures - these figures show it is severely impacting our workforce, and we fear they are indicative of the situation right across the UK.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We do understand why patients might think getting their medication online is convenient, but they also need to be confident that these services are safe.feedback

We cannot tolerate a laissez faire attitude towards dispensing of prescription medication; they are not sweets.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Too many practices are being forced to close because GPs and their teams can no longer cope with ever-growing patient demand without the necessary funding and workforce to deal with it. This has serious consequences for patient safety and the wellbeing of hard-working family doctors and their practice teams.feedback

Prescribing is a core skill in general practice and family doctors will always prescribe in the best interests of the patient in front of us, taking into account the combination of physical, psychological and social factors affecting their health. Imposing blanket policies on GPs, that don't take into account demographic differences across the country, or allowing flexibility for a patient's individual circumstances, risks alienating the most vulnerable in society - and we will be seeking assurances from NHS England that this won't be the case.feedback

Millions of women who use the combined oral contraceptive pill should be reassured by this comprehensive research that they are not at increased risk of cancer as a result – and that taking the pill might actually decrease their risk of certain cancers. This is not to advocate that women should be given the pill as a preventative measure against cancer as we know that a minority of women do have adverse health effects as a result of taking the pill.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Our population is growing and changing, with our patients living longer and increasingly with multiple, long term conditions, so we certainly need to explore and adopt different ways of working in order to best deal with these changes - but the magnitude and pace of the change being floated here seems extreme.feedback
