The doctors and staff at the NPMC are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of long term conditions such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal, postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and travel clinics.

Put patients first

 Despite carrying out 90% of all NHS patient contacts, general practice only receives 8.39% of the NHS budget in the UK — an historic low. By 2017, this is projected to plunge to just 7.29%.

As a result, general practice is facing a growing crisis.

Due to the sheer volume of GP workloads, in this year alone, patients will have to wait longer than a week to see their GP on at least 27m occasions.

And, according to a poll carried out in March, more than three fifths of the public now believe that the number of patient consultations carried out by GPs — up to 60 per day — is threatening the level of patient care.

To protect high quality services for all patients, I call on the Prime Minister to increase the share of the NHS budget spent on general practice in England to 11% by 2017.

This shift in funding would enable general practice to deliver:

  • Shorter waiting times for appointments and more flexible opening hours
  • Longer consultations, especially for people with long term conditions
  • More opportunity for patients to see a GP who knows them
  • Better care co-ordination and planning, especially for the elderly and those with complex needs
  • Positive benefits for the NHS as a whole, reducing pressure on hospitals

GP surgeries sit at the heart of local communities. I demand that the Government acts now to ensure practices have the resources they need to continue to provide the high quality care patients deserve.

Noticeboard

It's not a 999 emergency.  But you need medical help fast?  There is now a 111 number to call.
What is 111?

It is a new NHS telephone number being introduced to help make it easier for you to access local health services.  You can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it is not a 999 emergency.

You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best.  That could be A&E, an Urgent Care Centre or Minor Injuries Unit, an out of hours GP, community nurse, emergency dentist or a late opening pharmacist.

You can ring the 111 number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Calls from landlines and mobile phones are free.

There is a typetalk service (18001 111) for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Why should I use it?

NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help - wherever you are, and whatever the time.

It can also help us free up 999 and local A&E departments so that they can focus on emergency cases.

How does it work?

111 will get you through to a team of highly trained advisers, who are supported by experienced nurses.  They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms, and give you the health care advice you need or direct you to the right local service.  The NHS 111 team will, where possible, book you an appointment or transfer you directly to the people you need to speak to.

If NHS 111 advisers think you need an ambulance, they will immediately arrange for one to be sent to you.

Calls to 111 are recorded.  All calls and the records we create are maintained securely, and will only be shared with others directly involved in your care.

When do I use it?

You should use the NHS 111 service if:

  • You need medical help fast, but it is not a 999 emergency.
  • You think you need to go to A&E or another NHS urgent care service.
  • You don't know who to call for medical help or you don't have a GP to call; or
  • You require health information or reassurance about what to do next. 

For less urgent health needs, you should still contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.

If a health professional has given you a specific number to call when you are concerned about your condition, please continue to use that number.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
