We need to be clever and innovative with how we deliver the appointments. It is not anticipated that GPs would provide all of the appointments. Delivery needs to be broad with Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Social Prescribers, Mental Health Workers, Nurses, ANPs all being included.
We also need to think about the logistics of delivering such a service and a hub based model supports this, allowing a GP-led team as above, serving a larger population.
Partnership working is also an option, such as LCD and Network Locum (as used in City CCG and presented at a recent District CF meeting)
