General Practice Forward View

Latest update on GP Forward View progress in Midlands and East

We published a new issue of our regional GP Forward View bulletin at the end of June, bringing the latest news on how work to sustain and transform general practice is being delivered in Midlands and East. It includes:

  • The latest developments to support and retain the primary care workforce, including the new Local GP Retention Fund, the rollout of international GP recruitment, and wider workforce roles such as clinical pharmacists, GP nurses and mental health therapists, plus why it’s important for planning for every practice to provide accurate workforce data;
  • An update on extended access, including a full list of resources to help CCGs and practices to address inequalities;
  • Innovative models of general practice like Primary Care Networks; and
  • News on digital projects, from free Wi-Fi in practices to the GP Online Consultation Fund, premises investment, CQC report on primary care improvement and lots more.

The bulletin has been shared with over 4,000 stakeholders including GP practices, the Royal College of GPs, CCGs and local professional committees.
