The results of Cogora’s State of Primary Care survey were covered in the national media last week.
ITV’s Good Morning Britain revealed the results of Cogora’s annual survey which found more than a quarter of 1,300 GPs and practice nurses believe their time and NHS resources are majorly drained by treating lonely people.
Nearly a third said they regularly see patients who come to them because they are just lonely.
The results are part of our wider survey which is still open until the end of this week. The survey includes questions on a wide range of topics within primary care, covering prescribing, recruitment and the future of general practice.
We will be revealing the full results from more than 3,000 practice managers, nurses, GPs and pharmacists in a report to be published early next year.
