Primary Care Workforce Commission

Commissioned by HEE, the Primary Care Workforce Commission developed a report that identified models of primary care that to meet the needs of the future NHS.

The Secretary of State for Health, Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, commissioned HEE to establish the independent Primary Care Workforce Commission, chaired by Martin Roland CBE, Professor of Health Services Research, University of Cambridge. Through a literature review, call for evidence, site visits and panel meetings, the Commission wanted to identify and highlight innovative models of primary care that will meet the future needs of patients and the NHS.

The report ‘The future of primary care: creating teams for tomorrow’ sets out the Commission’s thinking which includes calling for greater collaboration across organisations and a broader range of staff involved in the delivery of healthcare.

Please send your views about the recommendations, and how you could help support them, to the Commission by emailing pcwcommission@hee.nhs.uk.
