Written evidence submitted by Dr Timothy Reed (FGP0073)


I’m a 62 year old GP having worked in Suffolk most of my career and have a diverse range of experience. I wish to submit evidence as I have an interest in the development of general practice



The NHS is built on a functioning GP service



General practice has collapsed



The consequences of this collapse when patients cannot access general practice



The main barriers to accessing general practice



The main challenge for the coming 5 years













Bureaucracy and burnout



Why has general practice not received investment on the scale of hospitals?
