When most patients have a concern about their health, they usually visit their GP. However, GP practices are under a lot of pressure. Part of the reason is that the demand to see a GP, or a practice nurse, has increased. NHS funding for general practice has, relatively speaking, fallen. Patients also tend to have more complicated medical problems these days, and helping patients with these often takes longer than just 10 minutes. In this talk, Dr Kamal R. Mahtani, an Oxfordshire GP and Fellow of Kellogg College, discusses some of the causes of these pressures, the impacts and possible ways forward.

This event will be chaired by Kellogg Fellow, Professor Carl Heneghan.

All are welcome to attend this event.

Refreshments will be served from 17:00. The seminar will begin at 17:30. The venue is the Mawby Room, which can be accessed via Kellogg College’s main entrance.
