Poor receiving worst GP care, study shows

August 4, 2016

Today’s Guardian reports on a study by the King’s Fund health thinktank showing that Londoners and people in deprived areas receive the lowest-quality care by GPs. The study found that family doctors’ surgeries in London and England’s poorest areas operate in the least patient-friendly ways and their patients experience the smallest improvements in their condition. About half the weakest-performing practices (40-60 per cent) are in London and about 40 per cent in the poorest areas, based on how they look after patients with conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary heart disease, the researchers found.
