It was very useful to meet the Chair and Managing Director of Herefordshire General Practice, which brings together the 19 GP practices in Herefordshire. I was surprised to hear that while 90% of NHS contacts are primary care, only 8% of UK health funding goes to primary care. To bring waiting lists down long-term, we need to invest more in preventive healthcare and give patients the choice of booking appointments by phone, email, or app to get the help they need!
