Building the Workforce-The New Deal for General Practice

Updated on Thursday, 7 May 2015, 1071 views

NHS England, HEE, RCGP and the BMA GPs committee (GPC) are working closely together to ensure that we have a skilled, trained and motivated workforce in general practice. We have jointly produced a ten point action plan to address immediate issues, and to take the initial steps in building the workforce for the future and new models of care.It is part of the implementation of the Five Year Forward View and the New Deal for primary care, which set out a specific commitment to tackle workforce issues, alongside a range of other proposals. These actions are designed to complement some of the local initiatives already underway, which will also be accelerated through the development of cocommissioning of primary care by CCGs and NHS England.

There are three key strands to this work:
• Improving recruitment into general practice
• Retaining doctors within general practice
• Supporting those who wish to return to general practice
