Looking ahead, the NHS is in a period of intense pressure, and primary care within this is facing significant challenges. Our population is growing and advances in medical science have led to large numbers of people who are living longer, with multiple serious conditions. Medical professionals are in demand and general practice must find ways to compete to attract and retain the best clinicians, whilst coping with increasing demand as the trusted ‘front door’ of health. We are committed to supporting strong General Practice teams to be fit for this future and helping in any way we can.
A huge thank you to our shareholders who work with us, our practices who area constant source of advice and expertise, and all of the people who work in our services and offer feedback on how we can improve.
