General Practitioners hold an important position in society, offering not just treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, but also providing an holistic approach to medicine, whereby the good practitioner moves beyond simply providing medical expertise, to providing preventative care and education to patients as people.  Respected by their patient base, GPs become important members of their local communities and trusted individuals within the lives of many of their patients.

As with dentists, registration with and regulation by the Care Quality Commission, has proven to be a sea-change for GP’s, with the patient becoming ever more the centre of care and treatment planning.  8,230 practices have been successfully registered to date with the Care Quality Commission. Whether in a single-handed practice or one where there are multiple partners, the task ahead of them is significant and challenging.  More than anything it represents a new way of thinking, one which the adult social care profession has been used to for many years.
