GP Partnership review published
Published: 15 January, 2019
The final report of the GP Partnership Review, chaired by Dr Nigel Watson, outlines the challenges and benefits of the Partnership Model as gathered during meetings with GPs, Practice Managers, Practice Nurses and others across primary care. Issues include workforce recruitment, retention and education and training; workload, status and role of partnerships and primary care networks; and the emerging opportunities for primary care in terms of digital and technology.
The review concludes that “the current model of care in the NHS is too dependent on hospital-based care. This model is not sustainable, and we cannot move forward without change that includes general practice and partnerships at its heart.”
There is an accompanying report of case studies outlining the different business models identified during the research.
