Video: Full conference speech of RCGP chair Dr Maureen Baker

Dr Maureen Baker paid tribute to the hard work of GPs who had sustained high quality care for patients despite funding cuts and staff shortages.

Dr Baker told delegates at the Liverpool conference: ‘Over the past few years general practice has had to withstand huge stresses and strains. Thank you for showing the resilience, dedication, and sheer strength of character to keep going on behalf of our patients. You are all fantastic.’
