The Wessex Primary Care Lifeline Project Summary Report


A Lifeline for Patients and General Practice: new ways for Primary Care in Wessex

General Practice is widely acknowledged to be under pressure. The demands of it from the population, the system and the government seem to be rising inexorably; general practice is being asked to manage more conditions and of greater complexity, the needs of patients are increasing as they get older and suffer from more diseases, they are often unable to be seen in a timely manner or as for as long as they and the clinican would wish, prescription requests and administrative tasks are ballooning, and we are struggling to recruit new GPs and nurses.
