Capacity & Workload Survey

This survey was launched in November 2020.  The survey questions and calculator have been removed but the report and analysis are still available.

November 2020:  Cambs LMC needs your help!

We have developed a Covid-19 GP Capacity Calculator and Workload Transfer Survey that we need you to complete

We are doing this in collaboration with our LMC colleagues in Beds & Herts, as a mechanism of challenging the false images of general practice being portrayed by NHSE and parts of the media.  We know this means additional work for you, but we need you to help us turn anecdote into data, to drive the incentive to invest money into local practices this winter

The survey asks you to compare one week’s activity in September 2019 to one week’s activity in September 2020 and to answer a number of questions about the transfer of work from acute trusts to general practice.

This is because we envisage pricing up the capacity gap and workload transfer into GP hours per week, and GPs per patch. We fully understand the myriad of roles that our GP nurse and HCA colleagues undertake, many of them still face to face. We are aware of the potential for additional PCN roles in the future. But the lion’s share of the digital transformation and workload transfer happening now, has landed on GP colleagues.
