At the heart of general practice since 1960

'How I see GP future'

The Prime Minister's chief

adviser on health policy has said he still sees a future

role for GPs as 'specialist generalists'.

Simon Stevens told a conference at the London School of Economics he did not favour making all GPs specialists.

Patient choice tsar Harry Cayton said earlier this year that the Government was considering a move to end 'general' practice as part of plans to improve patient choice.

Mr Stevens also stressed the growing importance of chronic disease management to the future of the NHS.
