This article outlines the 5 year forward view for general practice (GP). We have made some infographics and videos to help share the key messages.
published in October 2014 by NHS. It outlines the reasons behind the challenges that the NHS faces in the next few years and some potential solutions.
New relationship with patients
The 5 year forward view outlines the new relationship that the NHS needs to have with patients. This needs to be a more meaningful relationship where we work more proactively, with groups of patients.
This can be for primary and secondary prevention. Secondly, we need to support people with employment as this is a major determinant of poor health. In our opinion, prevention is not optional. It needs to be a core of GP.
New models of care
What now in 2023?
There has been some progress with the landmark 5 year forward view since 2014. However, there is still some way to go. There has been the unexpected challenge of COVID and now the cost of living crisis. We feel the outline of challenges is similar now to the ones outlined in 2014. If anything they are even more important with increasing waiting lists and evidence of more health inequalities.
We feel the potential solutions outlined in the 5 Year Forward View are also correct, but more needs to be done to implement this locally. We share our attempts to do this in Hounslow.
