Retaining GP Nurses: A guide for GPs and Practice Managers

Designed for GPs, practice managers and general practice nurses themselves, the Retaining General Practice Nurses report from the Capital Nurse project makes clear how GPNs leaving jobs through dissatisfaction, retirement or burnout presents a significant challenge for practices and directly impacts delivery of clinical care – and offers evidence and guidance on how to retain GPs and ensure they are recognised as valued members of practice teams.

Produced in partnership with NHS England and Improvement and Health Education England, Capital Nurse engaged with 81 GPNs from 75 practices in seven CCG areas across London. GPNs were invited to share their experiences including a focus on feedback from nurses in the key 50-plus age bracket. However, the insights and guidance apply to retention of GPNs of all ages, structures and locations.
