GP Partnership Review - Interim report

Date sent: Tuesday 2 October 2018

Emails sent to all GPs, Practice Managers and Nurses

Earlier in the year Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care (DHSC) announced a Review into the partnership model of general practice. This was in response to concerns raised by the RCGP and the GPC.

Following agreement between NHS England, DHSC, the RCGP and the GPC it was agreed to appoint an independent chair and ask for an interim report to be published in the late summer and a final report to be published towards the end of the year.

I was asked to chair the review and to report to  the Secretary of State  and the Chief Executive of  NHS England, Simon Stevens.

Attached is my Interim Report and also a Myth Buster about partnerships aimed at trainees and newly qualified GPs.

Best wishes


Dr Nigel Watson
