Email your MP to tell them about the Fit for the Future Campaign

General practice is the cornerstone of the NHS, helping around 50 million people in England every year, carrying out 370 million consultations last year. So, when GPs and their patients tell us that general practice is in crisis, we should all be concerned.

General practice is under immense strain. Years of under-investment in general practice and the chronic shortage of GPs and other members of the practice team means that without urgent action from politicians and NHS decision makers, the ability of general practice to meet patients’ needs is in jeopardy.

In 2022, we launched the Fit for the Future: a new plan for GPs & their patients campaign to put pressure on politicians and decision makers with responsibility for the NHS in England to commit to a bold new plan to make general practice safe and sustainable, both for patients and GPs, now and in the future.

GPs and their staff are working harder than ever to provide the care patients deserve, but we need the Government to provide GPs and their teams with the support they need.

Please share our campaign with your local MP, to help galvanise action from the Government to address this issue as a matter of urgency. If you are a GP, retired GP or GP in training, please use the form for GPs.

This campaign action has been designed to target MPs in England only. If you are interested in supporting our work in the Devolved Nations, you can visit their respective webpages here: WalesScotlandNorthern Ireland.
