Experts call for more evidence to back up move to new GP care models


well said Joe Macgilligan. There is a move to mega practices and the patients don't like large anonymous groupings. The modern NHS is so complex they need a friendly personal GP to help them navigate their way though all the fragmented services. Community services are a prime example. please could we have district nurses who are attached to the surgeries so that everyone can work as a team? We would lose most of our autonomy if we became salaried employees of such large groups and would live to regret it. Perhaps however part time GPs would not miss the autonomy as much as those for whom being a full time GP is a vocation in the traditional manner. Maybe it will all have to change as the full timers aged 50+ all retire and are replaced by part time GPs??
