Primary care networks - support offer

The Leeds GP Confederation is able to offer a range of services to support the development of primary care networks.

We have engaged extensively with member practices about how we can support you with your priorities, taking into account the changing local and national context including the review of the Leeds Plan, workforce issues, new five year GP contract, as well as the NHS Long Term Plan.
