[Editorial] Transforming primary care

Last week saw two important publications on primary care in the UK. The General Practice Forward View, published by NHS England and developed in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitioners and Health Education England, sets out a plan to transform general practice over the next 5 years. Backed by an extra £2·4 billion a year, the plan outlines steps to increase the number of general practitioners (GPs) and co-workers, as well as measures to reduce workload stresses, develop infrastructure, and support care redesign to enable increased access to GPs.
