The Primary Care Body is a committee of Jersey General Practitioners elected by their colleagues to represent them in the public domain. Its function is both to represent the island’s GPs at a political level and also to reflect the diverse nature of general practice -- now more widely known as Primary Care.
We would very much welcome your views, good or bad; in particular on the content and functionality of this website and in general on improvements you feel we could make to ensure the highest quality of care for our patients. Rest assured we and the remainder of our colleagues are committed to this task and are working closely with the States of Jersey and other agencies to achieve this aim. There are around 103 GPs working in Jersey - 88 Whole time equivalents.
The Primary Care Body is affiliated to The Wessex Local Medical Committee (LMC) helping to keep Jersey GPs up to date and in line with national standards.
All GPs will be on a States of Jersey Performers List. This will enable doctors to demonstrate that they are up-to-date and fit to practise according to the standards laid down by the General Medical Council (GMC) . It will also ensure that any concerns or complaints about a doctor are investigated in Jersey and are acted upon promptly and appropriately.
