CCGs told they must set up primary care networks by end of June

Comment

Practices work well because the GP's invest their efforts + time for the benefit of our patients how much time will need to be spent to coordinate care with neighbouring GP practices? GPs are already stretched to breaking point without having to coordinate care with neighbouring GP's. This needs proper funding & managerial support to even get itself off the ground. whilst 'working at scale' sounds like a good idea you lose the essence of General Practice and create more 'large scale' problems instead Where is the evidence base for this being a good use of money??? we simply need more clinical staff on the ground, increased funding for general practice to allow better maintenance and improvement of our premises / equipment and better remuneration to allow for recruitment and retention. Oh yes - and some seniority pay / recognition
