Under pressure: What the Commonwealth Fund’s 2015 international survey of general practitioners means for the UK

Every three years, the US-based Commonwealth Fund coordinates a survey of general practitioners (GPs) and primary care physicians across 11 countries. This report provides UK-focused analysis by the Health Foundation of the 2015 survey, which included several UK-specific questions funded by the Health Foundation.

The report centres on three topics of particular interest: GP satisfaction, care coordination and use of electronic medical records. The survey provides insight into how GPs perceive their working lives and practices at a time when health services across the UK are seeking to develop more services in primary care. The Commonwealth Fund website will publish the full survey data set, along with those from previous years.
