NHS Confederation responds to a multi-billion pound plan for general practice

Johnny Marshall, Policy Director of the NHS Confederation, responds to NHS England’s announcement of a multi-billion pound plan for general practice.

“The roadmap for general practice outlining increased investment and support is an important step for the sustainability of the entire health and care system. Closer working between primary and community care in partnership with the rest of the health and care system holds the key to addressing the needs of the population and relieving pressures most intensely felt by our acute trust members.

“We have previously highlighted the need to recognise the wider primary care workforce so we are pleased to see the commitment to develop a breadth of existing and new roles that meet the needs of the practices' registered population.

“While the general practice roadmap is an important step forward for general practice, to make the NHS truly sustainable we need to build on that through better alignment and partnership working in the wider primary care system and across health and care to improve the care that we deliver to patients.”
