Email your election candidate and ask them to back general practice in Northern Ireland

You and your practice teams have played a pivotal role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, working hard to provide care for patients and taking a central role in delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme. As we move beyond the ‘emergency’ pandemic period, general practice – the foundation stone of our whole healthcare system – is at breaking point.

As you will be well aware, unless there is urgent action to tackle the challenges facing general practice, patient care will suffer. In general practice, we need an expanded workforce with the right skills and premises to improve access, reduce health inequalities, ensure patient safety, and give us more time to care for, and build trusting relationships with their patients.

That's why RCGPNI has produced our prescription to tackle the crisis in general practice; and a comprehensive election manifesto ahead of the Northern Ireland Assembly elections on May 5th.

You can help support general practice by emailing your local Assembly candidate today to ensure they are aware of the problems facing you and your practice and let them know the action they must take to support you if elected.
