This is the third in our series of panel discussions in which Ben is joined by a panel of renowned national experts. This time we discuss how the new models of care will impact on and change general practice. In this first part the panel considers the impact so far of the Five Year Forward View, closer integration of general practice with the rest of the system, what GPs should be doing now and whether choosing to lessen the independence of general practice would be a good or bad thing.
Part Two will follow next week.
This time Ben is joined by:
Nav Chana: GP and chair of the National Association of Primary Care
Nick Hicks: Ex-GP and CEO of COBIC an independent consultancy focussing on outcomes-based health and care
Tracey Vell: GP, Chief Executive of Manchester LMC and Associate Lead for Primary and Community Care in the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership
