Re: Helen Salisbury: Did you save any lives today?
A big thank you to Helen Salisbury for an excellent reminder that continuity of care is a vital part of general practice. It is hugely valuable both for GPs and patients to have a good doctor-patient relationship, which has been shown to improve health outcomes, and should be part of the reason for being a GP in the first place. It is really important that with the current fashion to have bigger primary care organisations, which are touted as being more efficient (without a great deal of evidence), that the basic importance of continuity of care isn't lost. Thank you Dr Salisbury.
