In this episode Ben visits Thistlemoor Medial Centre in Peterborough to talk to Dr Neil Modha about their fascinating and innovative model for running what they call Open Access in general practice. Their system developed in response to a shortage of GPs and a high migrant population that do not have English as a first language. Using Healthcare Assistants from the local community to take histories and translate for the GPs, the model means that on some days 300 patients can be seen in the practice and has meant that admissions into hospital are some of the lowest in the area.

Aisha Malik is a sessional GP in Manchester and a social media strategist for doctors and healthcare organisations. She is the founder of Doctors in Business, an organisation which aims to get doctors more visible online. In this episode she explains how a traumatic early experience in general practice (which saw her practice rated as one of the worst in the country by the CQC) eventually led to an interest in the ways that social media can influence patient behaviour and contribute to practice success.
