The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute welcomes Chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard and theatre maker Viv Gordon to share the stage for the Institute’s fourth Annual Public Lecture GPs on the Brink: Restoring the Joy to General Practice.
The NHS underpinned by General Practice is where the vast majority of patient contact takes place. However General Practice has been on a precipice for some time – under-resourced and under-staffed our GPs are burning out and leaving the profession. Professor Stokes-Lampard, a GP in the Midlands and Chair of the Royal College of GPs talks about where the profession is now and how we all have a part to play in restoring the joy to General Practice, while Viv Gordon will share readings from her new theatre work PreScribed (a Life Written for Me).
This three minute video captures key elements of the performance, and the research that inspired it.
