A podcast from Humberside LMCs, the professional voice for all NHS General Practitioners and practice teams across Hull, East Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, and North East Lincolnshire.
In this episode we're looking at workload pressures in general practice in the light of the recent Health Select Committee report which said NHS and care staff in England are so burnt out that it has become an "emergency". Colleagues at Wolseley Medical Centre in Hull also recently invited cameras in from BBC Look North to show the reality of the pressures GPs and practice teams are facing every day.
Dr Zoe Norris, LMC Medical Director explains how the LMC can help staff deal with pressures, and sets out some of the services and resources which can be accessed via the LMC.
