A report by Ipsos MORI, which was commissioned by NHS England and partners, to research on the drivers and barriers to general practice nursing.


TheĀ research provides us with helpful evidence direct from GPNs about their role and the challenges they face, backed up with proposals to help:

  • increase the number of pre-registration nurse placements
  • improve retention of the existing nursing workforce
  • support for return to work schemes for practice nurses and
  • improve the training capacity in general practice.
