Dr Tracey Vell, Chief Executive of Manchester Local Medical Committee, explains who to advise of changes to a GP practice model. Transcript There is a changing landscape of general practice provision and this change is a standardisation of practices across a population. So we might have a hub-based provision which is 5 or 6 practices collectively providing care for a population of 30-50,000 which is well researched. It’s advisable to contact your regulator, CQC, and advise them that the provision of care has changed and they may wish to regulate you as a group of practices if you have some legal connection together and you’re providing care in a shared way to a population. Also the way that you’re indemnified - I would advise to contact your indemnifiers as it might change the way that they apply indemnity to you as a group and actually might even save you money. But it will certainly be very important to contact them with the changing provision of care.
