Number of GPs in the North West down since 2015 despite rise in demand, TUC analysis shows
The Number of GPs in the North West has fallen by around 90 since 2015 despite Conservative promises to boost numbers, new TUC analysis has shown today (Monday).
In 2015 the Conservative government pledged to recruit 5,000 more GPs by 2020. But since then the number of doctors at GP surgeries across England has fallen by nearly 1,000 while patient demand has increased.
