 Chat Details

Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

This chat is guest hosted by @WeGPNs

In January 2015, a ‘10 Point Plan’ was developed in relation to the general practice workforce: Building the Workforce – The New Deal for General Practice 

The plan focused on the recruitment, retention and return of GPs to general practice. 

However, NHS England also want to know the views of practice nurses’ (and anyone working in the nursing profession) on joining, staying in, or leaving practice nursing. Ipsos MORI have been commissioned to undertake some qualitative research to explore the views of general practice nurses (GPNs) in more detail. The research will be looking at the following key areas:

  • The current perceived benefits and drawbacks to working as a GPN among nursing students, registered nurses and current GPNs.

  • The journey experienced by registered nurses that are interested in practice nursing or have tried to pursue this career, to explore what has helped or hindered them in this.

  • The experiences of GPNs that went into the specialty early in their career to find out about their experiences of this.

  • Why some practice nurses might be thinking about leaving or retiring early.

This WeNurses & WeGPNs discussion, held in collaboration with Ipsos MORI, aims to explore the following areas:

  • Recruitment–What motivates and helps nurses to go into general practice? What discourages or prevents them from doing this?
  • Retention – Why do GPN’s leave to go to other areas of nursing practice? What would help them to stay in general practice?
  • Returning –What would help nurses wanting to return to general practice?

If you are interested in taking part in the research, Ipsos MORI are looking for a range of nurses to interview in more detail over the telephone, to really explore your personal views and experiences of this topic. More details are below:
