GP Forward View interim assessment

GP Forward View interim assessment

The success of the GP Forward View depends on the plan being implemented on time and in full – the College has been clear that we will be working to hold the Government, NHS England, HEE and others to account for delivering the pledges made in the GP Forward View.

Nine months on from the publication of the GP Forward View we have published an interim assessment of its delivery, which consists of an analysis of the short and medium-term pledges made in the GP Forward View, as well as an assessment of the development 44 Sustainability and Transformation Plans in England.  

The report finds that while there have been some key successes, such the launch of a £16m GP health service and changes to the Induction & Refresher scheme for returning GPs, the implementation of the plan to the frontline is being hampered by a number of issues.

The report also finds that STPs are failing to engage with the pressing need to invest in general practice, with a number of them failing to even mention the GP Forward View or engage with its plans for general practice. Most troublingly, some even plan for a reduction in the number of GPs, despite the GP Forward View's commitment to deliver 5,000 additional GPs by 2020.

The College will continue to push for the full implementation of the GP Forward View. We will publish a fuller annual review of the first year of the GP Forward View after the end of the financial year. We will also continue to track investment, to sit on a number of GP Forward View advisory groups, and to engage with our members to ensure they are well informed about the GP Forward View and supported to access its schemes and funding.
