Resilience means more than helping struggling practices
Primary care networks create the opportunity for practices to benefit from their collective strengths, but they do not automatically ensure sustainability for all the members of the network. Around £8m of the £40m resilience fund NHS England announced with the GP Forward View is still available to support the development of practices in the current financial year. We define resilience simply as the attributes needed to keep going, including the ability to withstand changes of circumstance, eg the loss of a GP partner or an increase in list size as a result of a new residential development. A resilient practice is one able to offer high-quality care with healthy finances and a well-motivated workforce. In other words, resilience is not only for practices already in choppy waters but for those who can see them coming.
