Support Your Surgery Campaign

In light of the current reports of a rise in GP abuse, both by some patients and media, the BMA continue to campaign in defence of GPs and their staff with our Support Your Surgery campaign to get the changes that are so urgently needed to support general practice teams.

The BMA have now added a zero-tolerance poster to show that assault on practice staff, threatening or abusive behaviour or damage to property will not be tolerated.

Please also continue to show your support by signing the Support Your Surgery petition and sharing it with colleagues, friends, and families to put pressure on the Government to support general practice.

You can also get involved in the #SupportYourSurgery social media discussion by sharing your support across social media.

Please do all you can to help them defend and support general practice at this critical time.

They are asking members to use their template letter to write to your local MP to outline the current pressures being faced by GPs across the country.

They have also produced a GP campaign factsheet that can be used to rebut the misinformation in the media and to proactively include in social media posts, letters to the local press or MPs.
