The Royal College of GPs’ are running a new ‘3 before GP’ campaign.
This campaign is about getting patients to ask themselves three questions before booking an appointment with their GP. The three questions are:
- use NHS Choices or similar reputable websites/resources
- seek advice/treatment via a pharmacist
The College hopes that this simple slogan will encourage patients to think hard about whether they need to see a GP during another busy winter period for general practice – or if they can deal with the problem in a different way.
