LMC leader to chair Hunt review into 'reinvigorating' GP partnership model

11 May 2018, Pulse

The chief executive of Wessex LMC has been appointed chair of a major independent review of the partnership model to look into how it needs to evolve in the modern NHS.

Dr Nigel Watson, who is also a member of the BMA’s GP Committee and its former lead on commissioning, will oversee the review, which will report back to health and social care secretary Jeremy Hunt and NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens.

Dr Watson said: ‘It is a great honour to chair the review and I plan to engage widely with organisations, as well as front line clinicians and practice staff, to identify the challenges and will make a number of recommendations about how the partnership model can work in the future.’
