More collaboration under new GP deal

GPs are to have more time to focus on caring for the most vulnerable patients under a new contract.

The deal with the Welsh government will see the removal of some "unnecessary" bureaucracy, and is part of a plan to reform primary care services.

Changes over the next two years could see a requirement for surgeries to offer more GP appointments and repeat prescription services online.

Dr Charlotte Jones, chair of the General Practitioners Committee Wales, said there would be more collaboration with medical colleagues in the community.
