Teamworking is fundamental to the future of general practice. Practices are coming together at scale in primary care networks and new roles are being introduced, creating multidisciplinary and multi-agency teams. Making these teams function effectively is a complex task.
This guide from The King's Fund brings together insights from their research, policy analysis and leadership practice. The need for collaboration and communication underpins much of the guide and it providex further reading and case studies to support each section.
Some of the sections will be more relevant to you than others, but if you are a GP, practice manager or other professional working in primary care, or you are supporting practices, this guide will help you think how you will go about creating and sustaining effective teams within general practice.
