GPs in at the deep end

POVERTY Truth Commission staff and supporters have had a meeting with a group of General Practitioners who are trying to find better ways of engaging with the community, and especially those living at the sharp end.

The doctors want to change the way they work with patients and communities in areas of concentrated deprivation in Scotland.  What is currently happening does not meet their needs, the GPs believe.

This is the first time PCT has met with this particular group, and we had the opportunity to tell them more about how the Commission worked and how it might assist with the development of alternative models of practice.
