Undergraduate teaching in general practice remains severely underfunded, says RCGP

She said: "It is unacceptable that despite our persistent calls for change and the desperate need for more family doctors, undergraduate general practice teaching continues to be severely under-resourced.

"This research highlights that GP practices which offer undergraduate teaching currently receive over 40% less in funding on average than the actual costs, and around 40% less than is available to their secondary care equivalents. This is simply not sustainable, especially at a time when we need to encourage a new generation of family doctors into the NHS and plug a major workforce gap.

"I have written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care about this a number of times over the past two years because having to 'make do' with inadequate funding to host students is simply not sustainable. Unless primary care funding tariffs are properly funded and brought in line with other areas of medical training, we will simply struggle to secure the growth which our profession so desperately needs."
