On Monday 19 October, the ICGP, which represents over 90% of general practitioners in Ireland and is committed to maintaining the highest standards of general practice for patients across all sectors of society, published Irish General Practice - Working with Deprivation - a report which examines health inequality in Ireland and how this impacts on general practice.

The report is the third in a series of recent reports from ICGP highlighting issues affecting general practice in Ireland. The first report, published on 28 September 2015, entitled Vision for the Future of Rural General Practice, addressed the current shortage of GPs in rural Ireland. The second report entitled Bridging the Gap – How GP Trainees and Recent Graduates Identify Themselves as the Future Irish General Practice Workforce" published on 6 October, addressed the emerging GP manpower crisis affecting general practice. This latest ICGP report, highlights the spectrum of deprivation seen by all general practitioners on a daily basis in both rural and urban settings.
