RCGP Response to the White Paper

The RCGP yesterday submitted its response to the White Paper on reforming the NHS.  Whilst the theme of stronger clinical leadership is supported, there remain concerns about the impact of the proposals on the ability of practices to provide continuity of care – a core essence of UK general practice.  Allowing a free choice of GP practice would “very likely threaten the viability of some practices, especially rural practices that provide a vital service to patients who are less mobile and potentially more vulnerable”.

The full response is available from the RCGP website.
