GP practices in England facing ‘tsunami of patients’

GPs have told the BBC that they are facing a “tsunami of patients” as we start to emerge from lockdown.

NHS figures for England show that in March of this year, GPs saw more than 28 million patients – one of the highest numbers on record – and a rise of 20 per cent on the previous month.

The Royal College of GPs is warning that without urgent resources they will no longer be able to meet patient demand.
