South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

Next steps for general practice in London – scale, integration and incentives – what works?

Integration and collaboration across general practices and primary care is already taking place in London with the majority of practices belonging to an at scale organisation. However the nature and extent of collaboration, beyond provision of extended access, varies considerably. Developing a more explicit commitment to general practice at scale is an essential driver to transforming care and this work focussed on developing a shared view about how general practice needs to transform to create a sustainable, integrated health and care system. This event considered progress to date in London and what needs to happen to achieve this vision and the early priorities.
