PODCAST: Are GPs Given a Bad Reputation?

The Future of General Practice

Steve Taylor talks about the GP statistics and figures and what the future of General Practice holds.

In this episode we are joined by Dr Steve Taylor, a former GP Partner who has been involved in training 60 GPs throughout his career. Steve is focused on helping get the message out there about the truth of what GPs experience on a daily basis – something that the mainstream media do a poor job of. Ciaran Fletcher and Dr Steve Taylor  discuss some of the statistics and figures that Steve shares online and what the future of general practice might look like.

What topics do we cover?

Ciaran and Steve discuss various topics, including:

  • What has brought about the increase in GP workload?
  • GPs in the media
  • Mental health in general practice
  • What needs to be done to turn around ‘bad GP statistics?’ What needs to change?
  • Patient satisfaction
