A five-year Framework contract for GP reform has been implemented in support of the NHS Long Term Plan. This Contract begins on the 1st July 2019 and will remain in place, evolving annually until at least the 31st March 2024. The first year of this contract will be a development year, with the majority of service requirements being introduced from April 2020 onwards. The success of a Primary Care Network will depend on the strengths of its relationships, and in particular the bonds of affiliations between its members and the wider health and social care community who care for the population. Non-GP providers will be essential in supporting the delivery.
Norwich is One Primary Care Network made up of all 21 practices and is fully supported by five clinical directors and the OneNorwich Transformation Team. Norwich Practices meet on a monthly basis to ensure all of the requirements can be met.
