Some 39% of GPs feel the premises they see patients on is in too poor shape to properly care for them.
According to a poll of 4,000 GPs:
- Two thirds said they had been prevented from developing or refurbishing their premises because of a lack of cash.
- And a number raised concerns about the impact of "hot-desking", or sharing consulting rooms with colleagues, saying that it hampered their ability to carry out a full range of services.
