Summary: This report examines the capacity and capability of general practice now and in the future, with a focus on GPs and general practice nurses. Description: The report highlights the need for general practice to work differently to cope effectively with the increasing demands it faces. This will be especially pertinent as GPs take on the role of commissioners of local healthcare services.

The report concludes that rising life expectancy, accompanied by increasingly complex long-term health conditions, a stretched primary care workforce and unprecedented financial and healthcare reform are amongst the greatest challenges facing primary care in the UK.
