New roles for general practitioners.
General practice is likely to change greatly over the next few years.
Increases in care in the community and day surgery will lead to more work, and the demand for better data on practice activity will mean the development of audit and epidemiological work.
To make time general practitioners will have to learn to delegate work that does not require a doctor.
Fundholding has already stimulated some practices to bring services to patients rather than send patients to hospital, and this trend seems set to continue.
It is important to pool resources, not only within practices but among other practices in the area-joint action will increase the ability to improve the services for patients.
