    The covid-19 pandemic changed the landscape that GPs worked in by reducing some types of bureaucracy and giving doctors more autonomy, and some improvements in patients’ access to GPs were made possible by new ways of approaching clinical care (e.g., more frequent use of telephone consultations). At the same time, the future of general practice relies on overcoming two major stumbling blocks: (A) how to get the public and media on board with transformations in how GPs provide care, (B) how to improve patients’ access to GPs while juggling the challenges posed by bureaucracy (e.g., the extra administrative workload caused by regulation). This report recommends that the UK Parliament’s Health and Social Care Committee support efforts to bridge the gap between public policymaking and public understanding, and to advice public transparency in the Department for Health and Social Care evidencing of pledges from its “busting bureaucracy” report.
