GP partnerships 'very much alive' despite CCG's moves towards salaried model, local leaders say

Comment

Had our LMC meeting today . All confirmed that if CCG took on co-commissioning , it must be directly through individual practice even though a GP federation could be on the horizon . Options of GMS partnership or being salaried should always be there. Yes, with even more services(those not requiring a patient list)going into community , this should open opportunities for potential providers (federations , acute trusts , social enterprises and private providers) to appoint salaried GPs and in fact train them with special skills. GPWSI was once fashionable and perhaps this may be some rebooting ? This can be attractive to young ones? As I said in the past , all creature great and small should be allowed to co-exist depending on circumstances ...........
