The document is a distillation of thinking by the BMA’s GPC on how GPs can proactively approach the development of new models of care as set out in the Five Year Forward View (5YFV).
The 5YFV needs both professional leadership and genuine ‘grass roots’ buy-in to be translated into reality. LMCs have a pivotal role in helping shape these ideas by, for example:
- leading, supporting and representing GPs and practices as changes take shape;
- monitoring the development of contracting for primary care services under increased local negotiation
- structuring GP interaction with new provider groups
The LMC welcomes any comments on the ideas set out in the document which can be posted here or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
