The review will consider and make recommendations where appropriate, in the following areas:
the challenges currently facing partnerships within the context of general practice and the wider NHS, and how the current model of service delivery meets or exacerbates these
the benefits and shortcomings of the partnership model for patients, partners, salaried GPs, locum GPs, broader practice staff, for example practice nurses, and the wider NHS
how best to reinvigorate the partnership model to equip it to help the transformation of general practice, benefiting patients and staff including GPs
The chair of the review will determine the exact specification and number of outputs. However, it is expected that the review will deliver:
an interim report that may act as a discussion document with key general practice stakeholders and highlight any quick-wins to support general practice that could be delivered within a defined timescale
a final report, with a set of findings and recommendations for DHSC, NHS England, and others: the recommendations should be focused, affordable and practical
The review will report to the secretary of state and the chief executive of NHS England, providing interim conclusions in autumn 2018 and a final report at the end of 2018.
