|dc.description||This document is part of the evolving policy of the new Irish College of General Practitioners on reform of our health care system. It considers two questions: (a) How can general practice be organised in the future so that, while remaining cost effective, it can deliver an enhanced quality of service to patients? (b) What should be its role in the overall context of the health service? By the organisation of general practice we mean, not just the settings, equipment and staff, but all aspects of the medical care system which relate to General Practitioners. Thus it includes the timing, range, extent and quality of the services offered. It involves the competence and professional values of individual doctors. It also includes the numbers and distribution of all General Practitioners, the manner in which they enter practice, and the training and education they receive. In considering each area of general practice the document follows a standard format. We have first examined the present state of the system and have then tried to identify the reforms which we would regard as priorities. Finally, we have suggested strategies to be used to bring about the sort of changes which we think are required.||en|
