Multi-specialty community providers

Under this new care model outlined in the NHS five year forward view, GP group practices would expand, bringing in nurses and community health services, hospital specialists and others to provide integrated out-of-hospital care. These practices would shift the majority of outpatient consultations and ambulatory care to out-of-hospital settings.

Over time, these providers might take on delegated responsibility for managing NHS budgets (or combined health and social care budgets) for their registered patients.
