The generalist nature of general practitioners is the heart of what we do. Sometimes we struggle to let go, and involve the closer and wider primary and community teams, even when we are feeling overwhelmed. New models of care are seen as the solution for all ills. Re-orientating primary and community care can only be achieved with honest conversations with practices their practitioners and their patients. We will step through the current health care model, explore new models and discuss obstacles and opportunities.
