Retaining General Practice Nurse Guide

General Practice Nurses leaving their jobs through dissatisfaction with their role, retirement or burnout presents a significant challenge for GPs and Practice Managers and has a direct impact on the delivery of clinical care. CapitalNurse engaged with a focus group of 81 GPNs from 75 practices in seven CCG areas across London to give you an insight into what helps them feel an important part of your team. The GPNs were invited to share their experiences of working in Primary Care and there was a focus on seeking feedback from nurses who were over 50. This age group is an important one to focus on as it makes up a large part of the workforce and many will continue working into their 60s. The findings and insights, however, apply to the retention of GPNs of all ages and are relevant regardless of the organisational structure supporting your Practice. Engaging with this feedback and taking action now with your own GPNs will help mitigate the risk of forecast shortages. We hope that it will increase their job satisfaction and loyalty, thus rewarding you, your practice and the GPNs themselves.
