      Other important issues addressed in these papers are the future of fundholding by Professor Ham, and the causes of and solutions to low GP morale, by Professor Mant and Mr Towse. Some of our recommendations require a minimal investment, for example the ability for GPs and general practice nurses to communicate easily by email with their specialist colleagues in hospital. Google Scholar Titterton, M. If administrative staff such as medical assistants took on half of this work, this would be equivalent to 1, more full-time GPs in England. The diagram showed lines of Caucasian women and men with body sizes ranging from underweight to obese in sequence.

      In order to achieve our vision, we make the following recommendations. All nurses reported that they discussed the dangers of obesity with their patients in terms of cardiovascular health and other medical risks. When patients came into the consultation requesting medication or specific diet sheets, some of the nurses suggested that this would be counterproductive and that the patients needed to consider potential adaptations to their lifestyles in order for weight loss to be sustainable. There should be greater involvement of clinical pharmacists, including prescribing pharmacists, in the management of people on long-term medication and people in care homes. Nurse Education Today, 9, pp.

      These roles should be developed and evaluated. For example, in the chapter by Professor Starfield the characteristics of a strong primary care system are discussed. Up-to-date data on these are not available for England. EL 95 The UK has led the world in the development of primary care over the last 50 years, and many countries continue to look to primary care in the NHS as a model to be emulated. In the United Kingdom the government has adopted an objective of a 'Primary care led NHS' and as part of this process, the Secretary of State for Health, Stephen Dorrell, announced in October a debate on the future of primary care in the UK, in which the Minister for Health, Gerald Malone would tour the country listening to the opinions of people involved in the delivery of primary care.

Google Scholar Hugman, R. Nursing also has an ageing workforce with problems of recruitment and retention: 64 per cent of general practice nurses are over 50, with only 3 per cent under Phone lines are open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Thursday and from 8am to 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Google Scholar Bowman, M. Primary care practices will include a wider range of disciplines. All new resources invested in new models of care should include a component for suitably trained staff to evaluate and share evidence of their effectiveness in order to justify new ways of working.

Nursing is another area of serious concern, with an ageing workforce in general practice nursing and similar problems of recruitment and retention. There should be agreed protocols for treatment and referral between local organisations of pharmacists and GP practices.

Quality Issues in Interprofessional Education. Interested nurses contacted the research team by e-mail or phone. We, therefore, set out to explore through qualitative semi-structured interviews the opinions and experiences of practice nurses managing obesity.

Section 3. Nurses were of divided opinion whether to address obesity with these patients and what primary care had to offer. Clinicians suggested a range of changes despite all undertaking a standardized scenario For patients being counselled about their weight, interventions that promote consistency of advice are advocated to improve care.

Your salaried GP may be based here along with urgent care for minor ailments and a wide range of diagnostics and treatments. Community Nursing: Dimensions and Dilemmas. Systematic review of interventions to treat chronic disease risk factors associated with obesity suggests that nurses can affect positive changes in weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, dietary and physical activity behaviour and readiness for change There was little consensus of opinion on whether there were better ways to discuss weight with patients who had no medical complications.

The Primacy of Primary

Interviews were audio-recorded, transcribed and analysed qualitatively using a thematic approach. Box 1 Major themes and subthemes emerging from data analysis Who are nurses discussing weight with? Written consent was taken at the interview. Opportunities to discuss weight with patients.

Primary care staff, including managers, will need training and ongoing support to provide leadership and management of new and emerging primary care organisations. Some recommendations require only the will to change, for example, one GP practice having responsibility for all patients in a care home except where residents specifically request an alternative GP, patients at the end of life being able to identify who is responsible for coordinating their care, and introducing the ability for patients to see a doctor or nurse of their choice as a key performance metric for the NHS.

What is the Future for a Primary Care

Tariffs for all healthcare activity are predetermined for set lists of treatments. In the final chapter, Professor Roland sets out his vision as to how the dangers of fragmentation and the challenges to define and assure quality of care can be met.

Data should be available to enable details of the workforce, the work carried out by them, and the quality of that work to be available on a routine basis.In the United Kingdom the government has adopted an objective of a 'Primary care led NHS' and as part of this process, the Secretary of State for Health, Stephen Dorrell, announced in October a debate on the future of primary care in the UK, in which the Minister for Health, Gerald Malone would tour the country listening to the opinions of.
