Video: GPs should form co-ops with hospital and social services says RCGP chairwoman

Professor Clare Gerada has told the RCGP's annual conference that the independent contractor status of GPs belongs in the 1940s.

She said GPs needed to evolve with the NHS and that the small business model was no longer appropriate.

Instead GPs should form integrated care co-operatives with hospital and social care services, pooling budgets to deliver care worthy of the 21st Century.

See what Professor Gerada has to say on the future of general practice in this video of her speech at the conference in Harrogate.
