Quarter of CCGs begin to implement ‘time for care’ GP practice changes


mixed feedback = trying to think of something positive to say about this. They are all nice ideas, and there may be something that a practice can get from the whole package, if it has enough funding to 'play' with how the ideas work in practice. That is the problem, the funding is dependent on using these ideas, and often goes to the management consultant advising NHS England and not to the practice doing the work. Perhaps if federations want to do something to bring this money back to general practice they could set up as management consultants so that NHS England can give them the 'money for primary care' and it can be put in to practices!
