College welcomes new partnership review

Publication date: 11 May 2018

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: "The partnership model of general practice has been a trail blazer for innovation in the NHS, which has allowed GPs to create the excellent service our patients value greatly, and it provides value for money to the health service. But increasingly we are finding it more difficult to recruit GP partners, and the College welcomes this independent review of the partnership model and a way of invigorating this as an important model of general practice for the future.

"Dr Nigel Watson is an incredibly experienced GP, with an excellent understanding of the NHS and the challenges it faces. We look forward to working with Nigel constructively to feed into this review, and eagerly anticipate its outcome, in the best interests of general practice, the wider NHS and patient care."
