With the healthcare sector in significant transition, how do you keep abreast of all the changes?

Dr Tracey Vell, Chief Executive of Manchester Local Medical Committee, explains who to advise of changes to a GP practice model.


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.
