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.
