Description:
The Blueprint put forward proposals for the future organisation and management of the general practitioner service and the role of the general practitioner within such a revised structure. The document pointed to the need for the general practitioner service to be integrated with other health services to enable it to function as an integral part of the work of the health board in patient care. It pointed to the need to encompass general practice as a whole, and not solely the G.M.S., given that it has a major influence on other parts of the health board work, affecting both the level and manner of utilization of major areas of service including acute hospitals, long stay care, mental health, child care and personal social services. In this context, therefore, the Blueprint stressed the importance of management structures being put in place which would support the delivery of quality care by general practitioners for all their patients. Such structures must help smooth the interfaces between general practice and the other health professions and services in the interest of a seamless patient service.
