General practice is busier than it has ever been. GPs and their teams are striving to meet spiralling patient demand while establishing primary care networks and contributing to the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out. And even more change is on the horizon.
Recently, the UK government introduced the Health and Care Bill to Parliament. The full text of the Bill, setting out details of proposed NHS reforms, was published today. General practice barely gets a mention, but the planned changes would have a major impact on primary care.
The Health Foundation's expert panel will set out what the proposed changes are and explore:
- Why and how primary care should engage with NHS reform?
- What does it mean for PCNs and the future of general practice?
- Does the end of CCGs matter and what did we learn from them?
- How can primary care work best within integrated care systems?
