The NPC has given its support to a new campaign launched by the Royal College of GPs called Put patients first: Back general practice. In June, the RCGPs launched a national petition calling on the four governments of the UK to increase the share of the NHS budget spent on general practice to 11% by 2017. This petition has been sent to every GP practice in the UK, and also has a presence online. The aim is to collect over one million signatures. You can sign it at: http://www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home/get-involved/petition.aspx.
