Primary Care: Today and Tomorrow

Improving general practice by working differently

May 2012

'Primary Care: Today and Tomorrow', examines the capacity and capability of general practice now and in the future, with a focus on GPs and general practice nurses.

The report highlights the need for general practice to work differently to cope effectively with the increasing demands it faces.  This will be especially pertinent as GPs take on the role of commissioners of local healthcare services.

Key findings

Rising life expectancy, accompanied by increasingly complex long-term health conditions, a stretched primary care workforce and unprecedented financial and healthcare reform are amongst the greatest challenges facing primary care in the UK, according to a new report by the Deloitte Centre for Health Solutions.
