General Practice Forward View

The General Practice Forward View (GP Forward View), was published in April 2016. It committed to an extra £2.4 billion a year to support general practice services by 2020/21, and aimed to improve patient care and access, and invest in new ways of providing primary care.

The GP Forward View provided support for practices to build the capacity and capabilities required to meet patients’ needs, including support to adopt new ways of working and to develop different ways of managing clinical demand.

In 2019, The NHS Long Term Plan was published, setting out further ambitions for general practice and primary care, building on the ambitions in the GP Forward View.
