New GP contract to mandate practices to join primary care networks


An excellent development, essentially replicating Manchester model. Great opportunity for locality integrated teams, extended same day access, better long term condition management and continuity of care. BUT needs more capacity with a larger workforce to meet the needs of the locality population (which varies from one to another depending on demography and economic factors). In particular need a smaller case load per GP. Greater opportunity for flexibility of career choice and specialisation
