How has Covid-19 changed general practice?

Last updated:

The impact of Covid is still being felt across general practice today.

Teams grapple with increasingly complex patient needs, pent-up demand and backlogs. Combined with ongoing capacity pressures, general practice is fighting battles on many fronts.

Two years on from the last national UK lockdown, we wanted to find out more about how the pandemic has shaped general practice from those working on the frontline. We asked practice leaders to reflect on the changes they have experienced over the last few years.

Livi commissioned a qualitative survey through Practice Index on:

  • How has patient interaction changed?

  • How has collaboration with colleagues changed?

  • How do practice managers believe life can be made easier?

This report presents the contrasting views and opinions we received.
