Part of The NHS five year forward view

Under this new care model outlined in the NHS five year forward view, GPs practices come together in networks or federations and collaborate with other health and social care professionals to provide more integrated services outside of hospitals. This might include GPs working with some specialists currently working in acute hospitals, as well as nurses, community health services and social workers.

Over time, GPs and their partners might take on responsibility for the health budget for their whole population.
