Primary care is being shaped incrementally by external pressures, especially the need to contain costs and demonstrate improved quality.
As a result, primary care professionals, particularly general practitioners, have been encouraged to take more responsibilty to influence health services, rather than just their own professional practice.
In recent years general practitioners'influence has increased through being involved in commissioning, or being directly responsible for purchasing care, from providers.
In future, primary care will be required to take a bigger role in managing resources for primary and secondary care.
Scrutiny of quality and cost of care will become more intense.
