There’s never been a better time to choose a career in general practice. Smarter collaboration, flexible ways of working and a digital-first approach bring community care, the voluntary sector, social care and other parts of local government, including public health, together to deliver sustainable workloads with the right support.
NHS Digital figures show 300 more GPs and thousands more other healthcare professionals are choosing employment in primary care than 3 years ago. Funding is now in place to recruit even more healthcare professionals, enabling the formation of more dynamic, responsive, multi-skilled teams, each able to contribute to improved approaches to patient care using their own unique skills and influence.
Here in Greater Manchester we are investing in improving health services like general practices with a focus on helping everyone to stay well and healthy throughout their lives.
