‘3 Before GP’ Campaign

The Royal College of GPs’ are running a new ‘3 before GP’ campaign.

This campaign is about getting patients to ask themselves three questions before booking an appointment with their GP. The three questions are:

Can I?

  1. self-care
  2. use NHS Choices or similar reputable websites/resources
  3. seek advice/treatment via a pharmacist

The College hopes that this simple slogan will encourage patients to think hard about whether they need to see a GP during another busy winter period for general practice – or if they can deal with the problem in a different way.
