Scots GPs launch national GP week

GP organisations in Scotland this week launched the country's first 'GP week' to encourage politicians to value NHS general practice.

'National General Practice Week: Celebrating the Best of the NHS General Practice' has been organised by GPC Scotland and RCGP Scotland to raise awareness of the services and support provided to patients by GPs and the wider primary healthcare team.

There will be events to promote the week, including the launch of the Scottish GPC's policy document: General Practice in Scotland: The Way Ahead (see story, right).

Dr Ken Lawton, chairman of RCGP Scotland, said: 'This week is all about celebrating the best of NHS general practice.

'We must continue to recognise achievements and champion high quality general practice through ongoing training and development, alongside events such as GP week.'
