RCGP makes recommendations for greater self care, social prescribing and signposting!

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) launched a report recently which reviews the 10 High Impact actions from NHS England’s Time for Care Programme.  The report recommends support for self care with 67% of GPs surveyed citing this as a means of helping to decrease GP workload.  The RCGP also calls on the government to both facilitate social prescribing for all practices and to launch public awareness campaigns to ensure public understanding of active signposting.  Read the report here.
