THE HAGUE – General practitioners are very concerned about the continuity of general practitioner care in the coming months. In addition, they are dissatisfied with the care they now provide, according to a survey among 1,600 general practitioners of the National General Practitioners Association.
“Concerns about vulnerable patients, the increasing workload, the own team and dropout due to cold symptoms are the order of the day. Together we must ensure that GP practices remain upright and can continue to provide both normal and corona care as much as possible,” said the LHV.
GPs are particularly concerned about the effects of the corona outbreak on vulnerable groups. “In the past period, GPs have been able to spend less time on contact and social visits to the elderly and the socially disadvantaged”.
The poll also shows that GPs have started working differently in recent months. For example, contact with patients is much more frequent via video calling and e-consultation.
