Royal College of General Practitioners

• General practice is the bedrock of the NHS but is under unprecedented pressure due to increasing workload, a shrinking workforce and an enhanced regulatory burden.

• The Royal College of GPs (RCGP) is committed to supporting practices who are struggling with the current pressures that general practice faces. In collaboration with NHS England the RCGP Practice Support Service has provided expert peer advice and support to 138 practices placed in special measures by the CQC, successfully enabling 87% of supported practices to improve their CQC rating, and 80% to exit special measures.

The Practice Support service has subsequently evolved to offer a wide range of support and training opportunities to any practice that feels it may need help.
