Invitation to take part in a Nuffield Trust survey
There is growing pressure on GPs to form networks and work ‘at scale’, but the benefits are not always well understood.
The RCGP and Nuffield Trust are working to support GPs to understand these changes and to help them get the best out of any local initiatives to create larger scale GP organisations.
Candace Imison from the Nuffield Trust is a keynote speaker at this week's SAPC Annual Scientific Meeting. She will be sharing her thoughts on future directions for primary care at our conference on Pioneering Change.
