Last quote by Helen Stokes-Lampard

We can take it into account when making a diagnosis or recommending treatments - but it should always be a patient's choice whether they disclose this information.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Helen Stokes-Lampard came from an article called Rise of the 'super-size' GP surgery as quarter of practices now deal with more than 10, 000 patients: “The phenomenon of growing patient numbers, and a lack of GPs to deal with growing demand is a long-running trend, and something the College has been drawing attention to for many years. As a result, many GP practices are seeing escalating patient lists they they simply can't deal with - although we must recognise that sometimes increasing list numbers are due to practices merging and pooling their resources.”.

Helen Stokes-Lampard quotes

Jul 26 2017

We are concerned about the concept of patients stopping taking their medication mid-way through a course once they 'feel better', because improvement in symptoms does not necessarily mean the infection has been completely eradicated.feedback

Jul 06 2017

GPs are working flat out to provide care for as many patients as we possibly can, but there are limits beyond which we can no longer guarantee safe care.feedback

Jul 06 2017

It is particularly worrying that some patients are deciding not to seek medical advice at all if they are not able to get an appointment initially.feedback

Jun 22 2017

We need these checks to be much longer as standard, so that we are able to give the same attention to the new mother as we do to the baby - but this needs more resources for our service, and more GPs.feedback

May 19 2017

GP practices that serve a population where a lot of patients might not speak English as their first language will take the need for longer appointments and translators into account when planning their services.feedback

May 19 2017

GPs will always strive to deliver the best possible care to all of our patients, regardless of their nationality or ability to speak English. In some cases this will involve organising a translator, either to sit in on the consultation or speak to the patient via phone, so inevitably this will take longer than the standard 10-minute consultation, and rely on the availability of translators.feedback

May 14 2017

The concern is that on Monday morning the appointment system may not be working, some places may not be able to access routine results, even the phone lines in some cases may not be working. If it is routine we are saying please leave it a day or two - if you are urgent we will prioritise but if not please give us a couple of days. We are saying to the public, please bear with us. . In some cases computer systems will have been patched over the weekend but what we are frightened about is everyone logging on and there being a massive drain on the system as every computer is updated.feedback

May 12 2017

We are still unclear about the overall impact on GP practices and afternoon surgeries, although we know many systems are being switched off. This could mean that urgent messages about patient care are failing to get through at present and that important information is currently being delayed – this is inexcusable.feedback

May 09 2017 - London

We know that our patients have great trust in their family doctor – according to the last GP Patient Survey, over 90 per cent had trust and confidence in the last GP they saw - so it's understandable that some patients are willing to wait longer for an appointment with their preferred GP.feedback

May 09 2017 - London

These drugs can be effective in providing short-term pain relief for some patients – what is important is that any decision to prescribe is based on a patient's individual circumstances and medical history, and is regularly reviewed.feedback

Apr 26 2017

It is also not the case that just because face-to-face surgeries might not be taking place, patient care isn't being delivered via telephone or online consultations, or by GPs making home visits - and when a practice is temporarily closed, adequate cover arrangements will be put in place. We agree with the report that forcing GPs to work 8am-8pm, seven days a week, regardless of patient demand makes little sense and is not cost-effective - and we reiterate our concerns that this will simply detract from the routine five-day service we are able to deliver for patients.feedback

Apr 26 2017

GPs and our teams are working flat out to deliver more patient consultations than ever before - recent research has shown that our workload has risen 16% over the last seven years. The fact that patients are finding it difficult to make an appointment is not because we are not working hard enough, it is because we don't have the resources and workforce necessary to deliver the care and services our patients need and deserve.feedback

Apr 12 2017

Despite successful efforts to recruit more family doctors, and make it easier for people to return to practice after a career break or period working abroad, we are still haemorrhaging highly trained, experienced GPs at an alarming rate. General practice is currently facing intense workload and resource pressures - these figures show it is severely impacting our workforce, and we fear they are indicative of the situation right across the UK.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We do understand why patients might think getting their medication online is convenient, but they also need to be confident that these services are safe.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We cannot tolerate a laissez faire attitude towards dispensing of prescription medication; they are not sweets.feedback

Apr 06 2017

Too many practices are being forced to close because GPs and their teams can no longer cope with ever-growing patient demand without the necessary funding and workforce to deal with it. This has serious consequences for patient safety and the wellbeing of hard-working family doctors and their practice teams.feedback

Mar 28 2017

Prescribing is a core skill in general practice and family doctors will always prescribe in the best interests of the patient in front of us, taking into account the combination of physical, psychological and social factors affecting their health. Imposing blanket policies on GPs, that don't take into account demographic differences across the country, or allowing flexibility for a patient's individual circumstances, risks alienating the most vulnerable in society - and we will be seeking assurances from NHS England that this won't be the case.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Millions of women who use the combined oral contraceptive pill should be reassured by this comprehensive research that they are not at increased risk of cancer as a result – and that taking the pill might actually decrease their risk of certain cancers. This is not to advocate that women should be given the pill as a preventative measure against cancer as we know that a minority of women do have adverse health effects as a result of taking the pill.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Our population is growing and changing, with our patients living longer and increasingly with multiple, long term conditions, so we certainly need to explore and adopt different ways of working in order to best deal with these changes - but the magnitude and pace of the change being floated here seems extreme.feedback
